The waxed line has two problems, it will not take CA glue when you tie a knot and it dose not turn corners very well in super light air.
I have had very good luck with Cortland Spectron Blackspot 80lb test which is white with black flecks in it. Don't let the lb test fool you into thinking it is a large line, it is not. It is spectra and very small diameter. It is strong, super soft, and it takes CA glue well. When you run it through your fingers it is very smooth which will allow it to run around turning points in the sheeting system very easily. Excellent for light air. Use this on 914's, IOM's, EC12's and Star 45's. Perfect for your A 3 or any other boat in this size range.
Here is a link to a place on line you can buy it...
Hope this helps,
