2012 was a great season, with +100 boats at the class major events: Europeans & Worlds. The Class builders are doing an excellent job offering several platform alternatives for all budgets, including home mades, and complete production series boats for 16,000Euros. The Rule Box continues to work really well as proven over again in every event.
Beyond global economy the class and the sailors are working hard, +100 boats in Europe & America is a strong sign and this effort will be a great base for the future.
The Class continues to provide more alternatives and improved build development each year. Now Thilo Keller launchs the new Arrow MKII:
- Improved platform stiffness
- Slightly more volume for lightwind perfomance
The Arrow was always the stiffest boat available and now sets a new level. The boat is built in all carbon and hulls are built in honeycomb sandwich. It comes with approved boards and rudders.
2012 A CLASS CATAMARAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS – THE VIEW FROM ONE OF THOSE BACK IN THE FLEET.
The organisers of the 2012 World Titles did a superb job and need to be thoroughly praised, particularly considering “The Gods of the Elements “did their best did their best to rain on the parade, and blow the whole thing away.
On a-cat.org we have an international A-Cat event calendar, and it holds a couple of nice features.
First of all you can view all events in one place, making it a bit easier to plan your season. Just over the calendar you can pick which countries you want to show in the calendar (as default all are shown). Be aware that you can pick multiple countries, if you fore instance just want to show your own country and the once near by.
Andy Scheurer and Dominik Scheurer have release a clarification on the recent launch of the new D3 A-Class Dominik is working on.
