Impressive lineup of speakers for Foiling Week Garda

Foiling Week, the first and only global event dedicated to foiling boats, their sailors, designers and builders, today announced the Forum Programme for its 2016 Lake Garda event.

The Foiling Week Forum is a unique event that creates an opportunity for the best foiling regatta sailors to share knowledge and information with designers/builders and enable technicians and theorists to put into practice their projects, generating an exchange of feedback that accelerates the development process of foiling. 

This is why The Foiling Week events are so popular, it is not only racing, not only a show, it is a real moment of growth for the foiling community of ‘Thinkers and Tinkerers”


An impressive lineup of speakers at the 2016 Forum at Garda will represent two of the sectors where foiling is beginning to establish itself as the ‘third mode of sailing’, namely Coastal and Offshore sailing. Transversely other key themes at this year`s Forum will be ‘Accessibility and Security’.
