Another super-active year for the foiling world has gone by: from a thrilling America’s cup to the first foiling Vendee Globe. In the meantime the industry is launching foiling boats both for beginners and the seasoned sailors. Foiling geeks are sticking foils out of any floating object with uneven result but the hunger for new is still there. We can think on many deserving winners for all categories.
