A-Class European Spring 2018 @Circolo Vela Arco: Sandro Caviezel 1st






Great images by Jacopo Salvi / Circolo Vela Arco , more than 150 pics available here. Sandro Caviezel (G7 / Landenberger DS short rig) defended Mischa Heemskerk attack in the last five races where the 2012/2016 A-Cat World Champ scored same numbers of bullets putting him in second place overall after two bad races on Friday. Sandro reports that Mischa should have been the overall winner on his performance, but either way Sandro got two bullets in light winds with the short mast and finished all races in the top five.

Good news then for both yards, Scheurer on their foil upgrades for 2018 , and DNA seems to have nailed new foils setup/versions from the ones presented some weeks ago.
If you look above, and as posted on an Italian A-Class Fb group page, Ashby was present at the event, but decided not to race his F1. Reasons not officially known.

Third place overall for this 2018 Spring Europeans for Emmanuel Dodé representing the French A-Class , who organized their own regatta this weekend also (more info later)

Next major regatta for the A-Class will be 2018 Europeans to be held at Warnemunde, July 7-14:
