The 2015 A Class Year Review by Gordon Upton

The 2015 A Class Year Review
The first event of 2015 was the Australian Nats at Lake Coolharaba on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.  In a range of conditions Brad Collet became the first National Champion of 2015 on an Exploder (J board), but Graeme Parker’s superbly sailed DNA (C) boat showed that the non-foilers were not quite dead yet, coming in 2nd, with Stephen Brayshaw 3rd on his Exploder (JZ).
Hot on the heels of this event was the US Winter Annual at Islamora, Florida.  In an event featuring a full range of winds and in the choppy conditions, foiling boats simply could not get a foothold and the event was won by Woody Cope on his Nikita (C).  Then, in March at the 2015 Ronstan Midwinter Championships in Key Largo, Woody was only narrowly beaten by Texan Bruce Mahoney, on his DNA (Z), who won on countback.
