If you are a UK registered, or based 'A' Cat sailor, we urge you to join the Class Association.  As the number of entrants we are allowed for the World Champs is based on the registered class membership, we need everyone we can get, so we have a good representation at the Worlds and Europeans. 
Thanks!

The A-Class catamaran is the fastest single handed racing cat in the world?

In fact it is arguably the world's fastest small sailing boat upwind? 

'Never start upwind of an 'A' Class unless you plan to tack off!'
* Please note - Time spent sailing an 'A' cat is NOT included in your lifespan. *

Why Sail One?
Whereas most other racing classes are one-design, the A-Class is a development class and as a result it has become the very pinnacle of the high-tech sailing boat.

* Important - Nationals 2015 Venue Change

The new venue for the Nationals is Pwllheli SC. This is a superb venue on the North Wales Lleyn peninsular  Check it out at Pwllheli SC

The date is the same - 25th-27th September 2015.  The facilities are second to none and they will have a brand new main building in July.  Possibly an even nicer area to sail?!


Weymouth say that they were accidentally double booked which would have rendered the inner harbour unavailable to us resulting in possible no sailing days if the bay is unusable.  Rather than try to reschedule, it was decided to keep the dates the same and move to another venue.

At Pwllheli, they are building a brand new Welsh National Sailing Academy, a sort of Welsh Weymouth and it is due to be opened in July, just in time for the 29er Worlds to be held there.  It has sheltered waters with 5 sailing areas to choose from and a superb sandy beach for launching.  They are building a 10 pitch Motorhome park with hookup, and the building contains all you would want from a National standard venue.  Oh, and a big bar.

So, fancy sailing here then??  It's all booked and sorted!  You just need to learn the Welsh for Starboard.
