A-Class Europeans: Day 2

One race completed only today. Landy still leads with another bullet. Great event just looking at the pics. Hey, watch out, as if this class catch up in Arg we will travel en masse! Where is 2013 Worlds?

Equipment analysis is futeless, forget about it, as a Landy told me, there is too much combo around, so the class proving once more that the latest toy wont get you anywhere if you are not up to the highest racing level  of this 100 boat fleet.
I'm wondering why Thilo wants a wing...??? He is third right now and some little bird told me with an old used sail. Oracle design team member, Mike Drummond also racing well (Coutts is calling him for the AC45s?).  When people are going to throw their Lasers away? These machines are simply too good to not be riding one. Congrats to the class for the continuous good work, 100 boats at an European in these times is quite an achievement in this high tech development class.

Some girls also racing. I guess this class in the future in Europe will hold +150 Worlds event like the F18.
