A-Class Worlds 2015 @Punta Ala in September: 170 Entries & Counting?
I was about to write a long article on the joy of sailing , flying and racing an A-Cat related to the nrs of boat registered for Punta Ala but I already did it several times, and there is no need to add anything else besides that 170 Entries are confirmed for 2015 Worlds to be held in Italy in September.
My only recommendation on the A-Cats is for you to look for a friend that owning one, or ask a bulder for a demo , go out and try it yourself. Getting airborne it's not even necessary to get hooked.
Last World Champs is Glenn Ashby at Takapuna, NZ 2014. Glenn will be racing F18 Worlds next week and also will defending his crown at Punta Ala. Above Candidates for the 2015 Title: Glenn Ashby by Richard Galdwell , Steve Brewin (WC 2011) by Julie Hartwig, Sascha Wallmer , Jason Waterhouse by Paula Kopylowicz and Mischa Heemskerk (WC 2012) by Danny Broersen.
