10 YEARS OF FOILING WEEK
PLACE AND DATE OF BIRTH: MALCESINE (LAKE GARDA), JUNE 23rd 2014
SINCE 2014 WE SET OUR FAVORITE PLAYGROUNDS ON LAKE GARDA
LAKE GARDA STADIUM
The regularity of its sparkling wind conditions, together with the quality of the hospitality services and infrastructures ashore, make Lake Garda one of the most exciting locations for sailors worldwide.
MALCESINE, HOME OF THE OUTDOORS
Worldwide lovers of the outdoors have chosen it as a reference point for the incredible variety of disciplines that can be practiced in the area.
FRAGLIA VELA, OLYMPIC SAILING EXCELLENCE
A club that has in its DNA the creation of regattas of excellence. Here’s where Olympic classes have always been trained and boats destined to make sailing history are tested.
RACING THIS YEAR
TEN YEARS, TEN CLASSES…
The International Moth is a high-speed, development sailing class with 90 years of continuous innovation. The modern day carbon fibre foiling boats reach speeds of over 30 knots.
The Waszp is an Australian, single-handed, hydrofoiling sailboat designed by Andrew McDougall as a one-design racer for youth and adults, and first built in 2016.
The objective for the 2023 season is to sail a fleet of 9 catamarans. According to the interest that is currently being shown, all existing boats should compete in the ETF26 Series events!
The Onefly is a concentrate of technology that is simple and accessible, both technically and financially. It will satisfy you, whether you are an amateur or a competitor.
It is the combination of a wing, tightly hold by hands, which generates propulsion and a surfboard that you ride on. In this case a board with a hydrofoil or, for short, a foil.
This ultimate monohull makes foiling no longer for America’s Cup crews only. Many more sailors can foil over 30 knots today.
A 5.5 m. one-design foiling catamaran designed in 2013 by Martin Fischer and built by Phantom International.
The UFO is a Steve Clark simplistic modern hydrofoiling boat, that allows anyone (almost) to fly through the air.
IQ FOIL (to be confirmed)
The board selected by World Sailing to replace RS:X at Summer Olympics. You can only use one sail (9 square meters for men, 8 for women).
HOW TO CELEBRATE FOILING WEEK ANNIVERSARY
EVENTS TO RELIVE THESE YEARS
We’re dreaming a party where all the friends who made the history of the FOILING WEEK™ could be present.
Working around a celebrating exhibition show on the history of our event. Unique images taken by some of the most famous artists, on a dramatic set with a lot of public.
FOILING FILM FESTIVAL
Our FOILING FILM FESTIVAL rewards the best movie productions of the year, as long as they are related to our passion. Short and medium lengths made of action and adrenaline, full foiling traction.
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.
