Finally we got a A-class regatta in Denmark - Tom Bojland reports.
13 A´s turned up to a combined A-class/Waspz event - which was a really good idea - the kids got a lot of stories from us "old farts" about foiling, speed and other scary stuff - important to get the young ones into high speed sailing.
The sailing itself was a bit slow - we did see 4-7 knots, +30C, 2 knots of current for a whole weekend, but at least we got 9 races in the box.
We continue our Lockdown interview series with a pair of Vikings, both former DEN National Champs - Thomas Paasch and Tom Bojland.
Bojland - In 76 – in the Oppie!
Paasch - I started sailing at the age of 6 in the optimist. At the age of 11 I got my fist catamaran, a Hobie Cat 11 (basically a scaled down Hobie Cat 14), and I made my dad added a trapeze to it.
I want to inform you that we have published the entry form and the NOR for the 4 nations cup.

I started sailing in Calanova School (Palma de Mallorca Summer Camp) during summer when I was 8 years old in Optimist and Cadete. After that in Calafell beach town (60 km south of Barcelona) in the Yacht Club in Optimist and with 11 years old I started in catamaran with the Hobie Cat 14.
