DEN Open Champs is able to take place.

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.
