A-Class Australian Nats 2018 @Wangi: Day 1 Results

Two races held today, Steve Brewin scored two bullets and leads over Ashby & Dave Shaw.  Good sailing conditions as seen in a video posted by Gavin Rietman / Forward WIP Australia. Even upwind foiling just from the start for Ashby and others. On a second clip he posted Outteridge leads at the windward mark followed by Glenn Ashby and Brewin,   still the 2017 World Champ, won that race too, we assume with superior downwind speed/handling.

Update: Complete performance & conditions report for Day 1,  by Bob Griffits at IACA official web

Waiting for some pics to be available, but with the sailors involved plus the conditions seen in Gavin's video the Australian A-Cat sailors are having a blast.
Got conformation on platforms from Simon Nelson, Ashby is on Exploder D3 & Z22.
