2012 Worlds Results, Wrapup & Images

We've been requested for reports on the 2012 Worlds. Record number of inscriptions with 120, but finally a 'reduced' event due to Hurricane Sandy approaching FL at the time, but the organization managed to put together 5 races in the 20-30knot range, making it a valid Championship.
Class 'rookie' Mischa Heemskerk got the title, followed by Andrew Landenberger and the 2011 World Champ, Steve Brewin.
Below a series of links to reports, posts, images and results of a very special Worlds.

A-Class rudders 'Trickle Up' to Artemis AC72

We all expect to trickle down developments from the ACup to our Formula racing cats. But this is a "Trickle Up" case, as it has been used previously and successfuly in racing by two of the top 3 at last Worlds in Isla Morada including Mischa who got the title.
Another scale and dimension altogether for sure, but we can think the goal is the same.

Bids for the 2014 Europeans

Attached you will find the offers of FRA and SWE for the venue of the European Championship 2014.
All countries must vote on their favorite no later than the 15th of December, so let your national A-Class Association president know your favorite before then.

A word from the new president

Dear fellow sailors,
First of all I would like to thank Stefano Sirri for the years he has worked for the class and wish he, and his family well for the future. I am sure Stefano will continue to enjoy his sailing with the rest of us.

Secondly, I would like to congratulate Mischa Heemskerk on becoming the 2012 World Champion. It is to be hoped that after Mischa’s success more sailors from the F18 class will follow him into the A class.
