What makes an A-Cat a Classic? A certain year of production?

yes and they also handicap race the entire fleet using three ratings. THAT is the fleet building move....

How many alu masted A cats do you foresee trekking to Florida? How many strait board A cats....

The key number is how many competitors do you actually race against. I don't see the wisdom or fun factor in two or three small fleets. The aussies solved the problem by racing a single large fleet on handicap for their NAs and trophied divisions as well.

I would think it would be older a-cats with carbon masts and straight, non-canted boards like a Boyer MKIV. I do not know of many aluminum masts out there.
