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.
Contact us or your local Assoc for joining the class and if you were wondering where and when the next A-Class Worlds are going to be held, now you know. And you can plan ahead.
