The British foiler, C-FLY, will be participating at the Foiling Week, Lake Garda, Italy over 8-10th July.
Lake Garda is expected to be a great venue to demonstrate the versatility of the C-FLY concept, alongside other foiling craft.
With sailing courses set to maximise the foiling action near the beach and spectator boats close at hand; the event will build on the success of the AC72 racing in San Francisco.
Foilers tacking to windward and with closing speeds exceeding 30 knots, the blistering performance gains from foils will be all too apparent.
The event is being attended by top sailors, designers and builders, eager to share the latest foiling innovations and their experiences. The morning forums will be followed by on the water action demonstrating the advances being made in everything foiling.
If the wind and waves get up spectators will see C-FLY’s unique 4 x 4 capabilities on show, exhibiting breath-taking pace and inherent stability, in equal measure.
C-FLY is a unique British endeavour to revolutionise high speed sailing and recapture the world’s deep-water sailing records. Developed by leading aerospace engineers, the technology has been proven with a 7.6m prototype, C-Fly Coastal.
