Conditions for the first day of racing in the 2014 A Class Catamaran World Championships were a little on the light side, with around 6- 10 knots of wind.

Seven times A Class World champion Glenn Ashby (AUS) had a great day ‘in his office’ with a first and a second and showing up many of the younger champions in the fleet was Scott Anderson (AUS) who’s second on the leader board with a second and a fifth places. Andrew Landenberger ( AUS) is third with an eighth and fourth places.

Australia had a great day overall as half of the top 20 are Aussies! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi Oi Oi !!
