Following the conclusion of the 2017 A Class Catamaran World Championship in Sopot, Poland, responsibility has moved onto Australia, to organise the next World A Class Championship.
Planning is well underway for the 2018 event, which will be held at Hervey Bay, in south eastern Queensland. Bob Griffits reports.
Hervey Bay is located approximately 300 kilometres north of Brisbane , and falls just a little short of the Tropic of Capricorn, so the climate is essentially tropical. The weather in November is reliably dry, with moderate south east trade winds.
