Foiling

Foiling pathway

We recognise that Foiling is here to stay and sailors should have the opportunity to learn from a young age. We have developed a junior & youth Foiling pathway programme aimed at young sailors to teach them skills to sail and race foiling boats. Sailors get a fantastic opportunity to learn on boats specifically designed for youngsters as well as the more established foiling classes.

Youth Foiling

Using expert foiling coaches, the Youth (15-19) foiling pathway develops skills within this exciting new discipline. The programme of 5 weekends is designed for sailors competing in youth classes to complement class specific training, creating adaptive and well-rounded sailors.

The pathway involves foiling techniques, technical setup aspects, manoeuvres and racing in appropriate foiling specific boats including the Skeeta and Waszp.
