The winner will be decided at Garda 2020 Foiling Week, Italy, June 24th-28th.
The evaluation of the teams involves a dynamic phase in which the sailors will compete in the water and a static phase in which the judges will evaluate the technical characteristics of each project, including costs, design, production and sustainability.
Good luck to all the teams!
The Foiling SuMoth Challenge was created by Foiling Week™ to support and promote sustainable boat building practices. Sponsored by 11th Hour Racing, the SuMoth Challenge will challenges students to construct competitive Moth class-compliant foilers while also considering the environmental, social, and economic impacts of the manufacturing process. The teams will compete in their full designed boats at Foiling Week 2020 in Lake Garda, Italy.
