RACING – TRIALS – SOCIAL THEMES – FORUMS – EXPO – ENTERTAINMENT
THE FOILING MIX
Foiling Week was the launching pad for most of the foiling classes currently in circulation, by giving their sailors the opportunity to compete against each other for the first time.
Foiling Week tests and trials are open to sailors and beginners with the possibility to sail the latest foiling boats, boards and gears.
We try to give as much support as possible to relevant Social issues by spreading messages to our community. #weareallinthesamebottle – #Sail4Chico – #loveislove – #foilisfoil – #backthebid
Since 2014, Foiling Week Forums are a relevant tool for sharing technicality and know-how for the foiling industry and its professionals. More than 300 sessions, 1,000 guests and 100,000 views during the last years.
We like to have fun not only on the water. The entertainment program we propose is as important as the rest of the initiatives organized during our events.
New products, services and technologies can find their proper place in our Expo area, ready to be shown and appreciated by press, participants and public.
