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.

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.

Focus on the Calendar

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.
