"Cold and breezy with a bright sun to keep you warm on the water. Close racing with many lead changes as shifts and pressure bands came through. Count on doing this regatta next year, same time and place. We had 28 boats race and could easily to get 40 boats next year."
Find below official IACA reports for 2015. The Class closed the year with the biggest and most successful Worlds ever held, with 170 entries at Punta Ala, Tuscany, Italy. I decided to go on my own to cover the event and for me it was a privilege being present in such an historical Championship. Also it has been a joy contributing to the Class these past years as news Editor of the official Class Web.
Martin Vanzulli has decided to stand down as web editor for the class website at the end of this year, due to time and business commitments. Therefore for 2016 we need to find a new web editor for the class website.
The role requires a responsible person to keep the site up to date with current and relevant information about global news of the A-Class.
As sailors we take everything for granted, boat builders are there to suit our boat needs and we are the ones investing to make the Class what it is. But the reality is a little bit different, for sailors to actually being able to buy a boat, there is another passionate sailor working and investing on his own to provide us our precious toys. Getting to know the background behind Cal Fuller story, remind us why we sail A-Cats and make us appreciate even more boat builders work.
