Winning a World Championship could be considered a once-in-lifetime accomplishment. Not so if you’re world class sailor, and multihull superstar Glenn Ashby, who has won this tenth (!) title in the A-Class Catamaran. Glenn posted first-place finishes in 6/9 races sailed in Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia, leaving him with half the points of his second closest competitor.

Beyond his talents on the water, Glenn has been working in collaboration with North Sails on the ‘Glenn Ashby Signature Sails’ since 2016′ a series designed by Glenn himself. Glenn, as well as third place Worlds finisher Blair Tuke, used the most recent version of the Decksweeper Mainsail. It’s a safe bet that Glenn is already thinking about the next round of updates that will then go into the next generation of his A-Cat sails.
