2014 A Class Worlds - Takapuna New Zealand

 

Excellent range of conditions from light,medium and strong winds and quite flat water. The wind was challenging with shifts of up to 20° at times and areas of more or less wind strength.

Really it was a case of two fleets - the 'Foilers' and the rest.

The Foilers were using J type centreboards , the rest normal C type curved boards.

From the top 10 , Foilers finished 1,2,3,5,6
