DNA | Holland Composites 2015 A-Cat Worlds Video - Extended Version
2015-2016 A Cat Winter Series
Even though it wasn’t winter just yet, the 2015-2016 A Cat Winter Series got off to a busy start in Atlanta the weekend before Thanksgiving. With just shy of 30 boats at the Woods Brothers Regatta 2016, including some new A Cat sailors, the Winter Series is bound to be a resounding success. Make sure you don’t miss any of it!
We have quite a schedule that’s fallen into place with some old favorites, some new venues, and a few places that are quickly becoming favorites. Escape the cold, snowy, rainy, north and enjoy the pleasures of sailing in the Southeast District.

Glenn Ashby Interview at Punta Ala
Great Coverage from Catamaran Sailing News!
as written by Martin Vanzulli, publisher of Cat Sailing News and expert on a wide variety of high performance boats.
The US A-Class Association hired Nick Bowers from Kettle Cinema to film their North Americans 2015 Championships after seeing Nick's video of the GC32s I published on Jan 27. That GC32 clip was already impressive, and what he got out of the As racing at Panama City in Florida was out of the scale.
Past weeks Nick has sent the original raw footage to Bailey White, US Class President, more than 500GB of
I think these shots by Nick Bowers/Kettle Cinema are definitely the best sailing clips ever filmed, closest thing to it might be past Americas Cup stream.
Plus the chance to see in detail the refined handling work & body motion needed to make current A-Cat tech go airborne. For those always speaking on altitude control on windsurf foilers and kites, you need to understand that with current As setup you also have lots of body trim affecting the flight.
Wands & FP&F20 Js are for "'rookies'" as they might provide simpler and easy flights a la Stunt 9 or FP/F20, but achieving and learning A-Cat foiling technique above is something you must try before leaving this World.
Check there is not much wind in these takes, which were all filmed while racing the North Americans. I like Moths and we all know they are the best foilers right now, but there is no way you can get such a styling ride and boat combination. Foiling shots are from Matt Strubble & Bruce Mahoney.
I have seen this video above like about 100 time in a few days, I can´t stop watching it...

Next Worlds will be held at Punta Ala in a few weeks, 170 boats in the entry list are confirmed: www.aclassworlds2015.it/
