Q&A with Glenn Ashby by Tucker Thomson

So good having guys like him representing the Multis at the highestsailing  level. Glenn is simply Nr 1, and seems such a good guy.  If there is a benchmark to measure how good a sailor can be and specially a Multihull one, is his domination of the A-Class racing: Straight boards, curves boards, flaoting, foiling... it doesn´t matter, those are tiny details for the best sailors, as they always find a way to adapt and win with any equipment.

Glenn trained Spithill and grabbed the Cup as Oracle coach, with New Zealand he was too close at San Francisco, now his expertise and past Cup experience together with Peter Burling at the helm is just the perfect combo to take the Cup back to Auckland.

He will be also racing at Punta Ala A-Cat Worlds in 3 weeks, and this time I wont be sailing a like Bordeaux 2014 Europeans, so I will try to get some good footage from him sailing & racing as not much available , if any, of Glenn's foiling rides. Also will bother him with an interview.
