The fleet is still pretty mixed, probably about 50/50 flying/classic. A lot of the classic side are guys who have been in the class for years and not planning to or just havent made the transition yet. The rest are trying to learn how to sail the classic well before stepping up to the foilers.
At St Pete NOODs there's were 18 classics and 20 flyers, so a pretty even fleet.
The way the fleet works, everyone starts together, races together, drinks together, and the new the RC just breaks out the fleets at the end of the day for scoring purposes only. So it's a 40 boat fleet, not two 20 boat ones.
Thanks for the info. I was talking to some of the A cat guys at Bluster on the Bay in January, they said there's an A fleet up in Eustis I think that was doing regular races every couple weeks or so? I'm about 90 miles south of there, I'll have to drive up and check it out sometime. I'm looking at maybe getting a Classic, can't afford a full foiler.
