A-Class Europeans 2018 @Warnemunde 2018: Day 2



Great images by Gordon Upton / DNA Perf Sailing / IACA. Full gallery at IACA fb. Looks like powerful sitdown conditions for last race. Gordon reports carnage for that one. His report later, but before World Cup Semis!
3 races held today.  Three bullets for Ashby and then mixed results for the top ten. More info later along photos when available. 80 boats racing at Warnemunde Week.

 Also check 2nd picture by Gordon above. Sequence after the start, Ashby goes full airborne upwind. Glenn Ashby is Grand Maestre of the A-Class, he will take his talent and secrets with him, I don't think you can teach this level of domination racing A-Cats, equipment aside, he will win , always no matter what.

Take notice he spent the night setting up his F1x as reported by Upton, as equipment failure in practice race.
