A-Class Europeans 2013 @Barcelona: Lay Day

Rest day today for the fleet after 6 races completed. Brewin leads, check previous A-Cat post.
I contacted Manuel Calavia to know what is going on at Barcelona and what happened with his scores, a bfd, dns , 4, 1,1, 6 . Manolo's report at www.a-cat.org/?q=node/241 


Also some comments from Arno Terra at DNA blog 

One thing I realized at F18 LA Worlds last year when we were hit from behind in the start and my stick ended like this pic by Cristayn Fletcher of Calavia above, is that being a light Ronstan alu one I could continue racing even though it was bended in the same angle. In large fleets or to prevent not completing a race it can be a good alternative to carbon ones, and it even felt a better helm due to the leverage...!

Also Piet Saarberg, IACA' s Gral Sec,  has been sending complete reports every day this week, in his last one he also talks some interesting comment about new developments and combined conditions this week.
