A-Class SUI, GER & AUT Nats Championship for Wallmer (1st Overall) , Keller (2nd Overall) & Heinzle


I was waiting for some pics to publish this that finally weren´t available. Long title for a great joined event with 50 A-Cats on the starting line. Sascha Wallmer took the overall and the Swiss Nat crown. The Class keep showing how competitive it is in terms of designs and sailors level as shown by Bob Baier winning the French Nats overall the current World Champ and now ending 4th in his local waters.

Same with designs, we had Paasch Nikita in two recent wins,  Baier's Nikita in France, Lars Vision at Danish Nats and now Wallmer Scheurer G6 followed by Thilo Keller's new Arrow MKII.

Although in sails my friends at Landenberger are building up a 'Monopoly', as all these events and the top five in this last one are from them. But Heemskerk will put some pressure there with his new 'Mischa Sails' he already used at the French Nats and North Sea regatta in the F18. 

Chris Field is also performing with Hammer sails. And Ashby sails, well  I guess Glenn is too busy with Team New Zealand right now.
