A-Class: Punta Ala Worlds 2015 by DNA Part II
Once more the right dose of footage by Nick Bowers / Kettle Cinema, Punta Ala was the perfect stage to film this. What else to say? Eye Candy footage. Just watch some of the most skilled & talented sailors in the World (from any Class) outhere blasting Tuscany waters. Sailing starts 1:30-
We had some good foiling sessions past days here in BA but with some chop, handling it forces you to be more active and develop a higher degree of finesse, that is why talented guys putting the hours like Arg 21 will be sailor to watch at Medemblik, he is flying here a la Mischa/Ashby without a doubt.
This weekend a rookie told me: "But why I'm not foiling right away?" ... I told him, if you want easy foiling go sail a Moth or call Michele for a Stunt 9.
The As right now provides sailors the greatest challenge you can get of any racing sailing machine. It is good? Well, it is what it is, and we are having so much fun doing it that I will leave discussions to others right now.
Also believe that the A is an excellent training platform for any other Class, specially F18s or Nacra 17s when you don´t a crew available. When I go back to the F18s, I have 'spare time' for each maneuver, giving you additional control and sensitivity.
