Report by Bailey White:
The 2015 North Americans will be held may 18-22 at St Andrews Bay Yacht Club, Panama City, Florida.
Last year the event was hosted by Sail North Carolina with 60 boats in the lineup. Additional containers from Europe have arrived since and we expect the US fleet to continue its solid growth and participation.
February 02 is Heinz Muller birthday. Great to see how many years you can have sailing the As, all my admiration and greetings to his 40yrs A-Cats calendars. Sent by Georg Reutter.
"German A-Class Associaton Member Heinz Müller becomes 90 Years old. After sailing the A-Class more than 40 Years, he is still keen to get back on the water in spring.
On his home Lake near Biblis, he is still the man to beat on a his catamaran. The legend of his small "camping vehicle" in the size of a french car lives on.
The US fleet had their annual winter event at Isla Morada. All Images by Emmanuel Cerf, (US Exploder importer), who took hundred pics from the regatta that can be found at USACA FB
USACA Report: "Congrats to Woody Cope and the always fast Nikita today in very light (some drifting, some trapezing) air, weed, and chop. No foiling was sustainable. The bumpy conditions also showed how good C board / winglet boats like the DNA and others".
