This is a special year, we are coming out of a pandemic that for a long time has not allowed us to sail as much as we would have liked to and therefore, knowing that the European A Class is the big event of the Class this year 2021, we have taken great attention to prepare everything necessary for you to spend a pleasant stay in Puerto Sherry, both on the water and ashore.
Stay tuned to our social networks, you will receive more information soon.
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.
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
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!
