All Images MV / Catsailingnews.com - Just a teaser. Lots of material today including Nick Bowers special drone cam. Nick was hired by the effort of Bailey White and others including Holland Composites, the little problem was he didn´t had a rib.., so with Felix Egner we offered him to get on ours, not much power on the 40hp but enough to get some incredible footage from Glenn Ashby & Mischa Heemskerk. Additional pics at IACA fb page.
From the races I could saw Glenn was way ahead, but Mischa? Well, he overlaped some boats and we elapsed a 15mins gap on the final upwind (where he was foiling too), plus the downwind margin you had a 30min diff over the rest of the top guys.
The last info I have before leaving the club is that the race was cancelled , as Mischa got 30mins ahead of the second. But it was cancelled on the overtime for the second place.
Later official results as they are pending, and it is a shame they will cancel Mischa's race, nobody's fault, too hard on the rest which were working hard to get around a tricky course race.
More pics and reports later too but all that is secondary regarding what these two guys are doing at Punta Ala waters. Again: History in the Making is the best word to define what we witnessed today.
Stay tuned for Nick Bowers footage....
Updated Results for Day 2, Glenn Ashby & Mischa Heemserk lead after 3 races. Two races held in each fleet today, but only one race computed for each group on a cancellation and a protest for each fleet respectively:http://www.aclassworlds2015.it/giorno%202.pdf
