Hall Spars Admirals Cup 2015

E-mail Print PDF

The Admiral's Cup once again proved why it is a top draw year after year. While the wind at the venue was very tricky this year, the event overall was superb. Sailing right off the beach was a real highlight as was the great help by volunteers in launching and security. The party Saturday night for the A-Class at the Tampa Bay Auto Museum on Saturday night was incredible too.

Thank you to Ben and Nan Hall and all the volunteers for their great work in organizing the event and thank you to the Cerf family for hosting us at their museum. Also thank you to Mike Quaglio who came out with his foil assisted catamaran RIB that helped with pictures and video. The boat is a perfect fit for the A.

North American Coaching Clinic - Sponsored - sign up now!

E-mail Print PDF



The USACA is sponsoring a coaching clinic just before the North Americans in Panama City at the yacht club.

Randy Smyth, silver Olympic medalist in the Tornado and long time A-Class sailor, will be coaching us. I can promise you that Randy's work is excellent as a coach. Bob Hodges and I work with him as often as we can.

We have set the cost at $80 per person including coaching, food and refreshments, and fuel for the two day event with a $1000 subsidy from the USA A-Class Association.

We have the clinic starting on Saturday afternoon so that people can arrive in the morning and set their boats up beforehand. I hope everyone can attend. This is going to be a great way to prepare for the North Americans and to generally keep improving speed, enjoyment, and safety. Randy has a very good program for preparing for large fleet regattas.

Ronstan Midwinters Regatta Report and More (Yes - you need to register for the A-Cat North Americans)

E-mail Print PDF

DSC 297931 A-cats made the trek to Key Largo, and was it ever a good decision to go. I did not hear a single complaint. Everyone loved the venue. The weather didn't cooperate Sunday but everything else was perfect. Special thanks to Ben Moon with sponsorship from Ronstan and Skip Kaub who hosted quite a few boats.

Some people are looking at buying property there. It is that good.

Take a look at the great report published on the International A-cat site and Catsailing News.
Great job Bruce and all the top 5 sailors, the Intergalactic winners (scored as the top finishers in the bottom half of the fleet - nice and simple) and great job Woody on the Nikita. Woody has either won, tied, or otherwise had the most bullets for every major event this year. The foilers are fast but so is the Nikita!

Sam Armington looked very quick on his home built boat in the breeze as well and several sailors turned in some great performances. Probably personal bests.

See you in Gulfport and get ALL OF YOUR friends to register for the A-cat North Americans today. No city that I know of has ever courted us the way Panama City is doing this year. They have raised more sponsorship money than we have ever seen before. Let's reciprocate and show what a great class we truly are. Please.

St. Pete NOODs !!

E-mail Print PDF

The A-Class has been invited to do the St Pete NOODs again next month. This is a great regatta. I went last year and had a great time. We sailed out of Spa Beach in downtown St Pete and people watched the racing from the pier. Breeze was 8 to 15 and it was a lot of fun to sail with the VXs and Contenders. Can't wait for us to show off some foiling this year.

I am in. Bill Vining, Ken Marshack, Woody, Rush, Emmanuel, possibly Ben, and others are a go. With little planning we had about 10 boats last year and I think we could easily have more this time. Not only is the regatta a lot of fun, you come away with a ton of gifts and get to enjoy a reception every night with Mount Gay.

It's also a nice place to stop or leave the boat on the way to the Upper Keys in early March. I can help find storage for you if you need it between the two regattas.

Late fees start Jan 28 so the time to register is now.

Hope to see you there!
