A-Cat Class Rules rewrite

As you might know, the Class Rule rewrite was taken of the agenda for the 2017 WGM at the Sopot Worlds. The main reasons for that was a new contact we got assigned at World Sailing, found some issues in complying with the World Sailing template, which would cause them to not being able to approve the rule rewrite.

These issues have now been fixed along with incoorporating the World Sailing Interpretation from 10th of August on Thilo Kellers foil system.

New Classic Division Rules Incorporated and Guidelines Issued.

At long last, and after much work on Graeme Harbour's Measuring side, and Paul Larsen's Technical Committee side, we finally have a full set of 'A' Class rules in one official World Sailing document.  In addition, there is now a revised set of Measurers Guidelines that will now cover and record such things as foil size/position for Classic as well as Open division boats.

European Championships NOR and Registration open

With the fall in Covid cases in Spain, it looks like the Euros is going to happen at Puerto Sherry, ESP.    So, time to book up to sail on the Atlantic Ocean, and take a chance to see the historic city of Cadiz.  Of course, some counties will to be able to travel, either from Government restrictions or other such difficulties.  However, we look forward to seeing and welcoming those who can come and race.

Registration and the NOR are all available HERE

Rescheduled 2022 World Championships at St. Petersburg USA, website now open.

The 'A' Cat international calendar has now changed as a result of the US Association managing to reschedule their World Championships event in Florida to April 2022.  It was originally due to happen in 2020, but then postponed to Nov. 2021.  However, as COVID and travel conditions would have still probably prevented the event happening, it was also cancelled.

However, we now have the following dates for your diaries;

2-6th April 2022 for the 'Admiral's Cup', the warm up event.

First of all, a huge thank you to all who participated, making the ACAT Class the biggest of the St Pete NOODs.  Emmanuel Cerf reports.

We had perfect sailing conditions, starting with heavy winds on the first day, medium on the second and medium-light on the third. Allowing sailors to shine in their favorite conditions, and shine they did!

GER Nationals 2021 NOR - 10-13th June, Lake Walchensee

Visit https://www.raceoffice.org/Walchenfass2021_A_Cat_IDB  where you can find NoR in German, later on also in English available but it is already possible to enter.
Accomodation should be booked very early.  This is a beautiful place, with thermic wind conditions like Lake Garda and flat water making it good for foiling.
Even without the sun, a good breeze is possible when the gradient wind is blowing from the north west to north into the pass like out of a nozzle!
