Glenn Ashby Wins His 10th Australian A Class Catamaran Title
Published on January 5th, 2014
Glenn Ashby extended his overall winning margin in the final race of the Australian A Class Catamaran Championships, held December 30-January 3 at the St Leonard’s Yacht Club, on Port Phillip Bay, to secure an outstanding 10th Australian Championship.
Glenn Ashby used an Ashby sail, and DNA platform. In second was Steve Brewin with a Brewin sail and a Nikita platform, while Stephen Brayshaw in third used a Brewin sail and a DNA platform. All three sailors used a Fibrefoam mast.
At the conclusion of the regatta, 18 boats were loaded into containers for shipping to Auckland where the 2014 World Championships will be held February 9-16 at Takapuna Boating Club.
The World Titles should be a fascinating contest between a number of the America’s Cup skippers and crew, against some of the highly talented A Class sailors from Australia in particular, and the United States and Europe.
