It is with great sadness the IHCA announces the passing of Hobie sailor Tony ‘Dingo’ Laurent. Tony while remembered as the person who sailed the Hobie 18 across the Atlantic he did so much more in Hobie sailing and beyond. He was also a passionate Hobie sailor competing in many Hobie World, European, National Championships and Hog’s Breath 1000. Tony continued after his Hobie sailing to race in a Julies Venrne Challenge, around the world and cross Atlantic Races.
Whatever Tony did he put 100% effort into the project. Tony ‘Dingo’ Laurent will be missed by all that have privilege to race with, against and to know him. The IHCA passes on our most sincere condolences to Lolita (also a Hobie sailor from New Caledonia) and their daughter Jessie.
