A good fleet is expected with mainly French boats .
We are curious how ours French DNA guys are doing ! best luck and good winds !
In the mean time on the other side of the ocean The North Americans start this weekend .
A great 50 + boats fleet also there on the line . Great to see the A class is good health everwhere.
Off course still a lot of discussion about the class developments the last years. Not all sailors are
100% happy about the foiling revolution . We can understand. Change always results in resistance of part of the people involved .
But we may conclude that the majority of the A cat lovers are excited about the development, and that the class is growing as the foiling challenges people to try it.
An interesting picture I found on the web is this one of reigning US champion Bruce Mahoney ( and our bet for this year too) shows a hiking-foiling-mode on his new Z boards / L rudders DNA:
A great top level fleet is expected including Mischa Heemskerk (NED), Chris Field (GBR) and Sergio Mehl ( ARG) on the latest DNAs
Interesting to see them lining up with the best Sheurers and Exploders !
Stay tuned and have fun sailing your boats !
