From January 11th to 14th at Woollahra Sailing Club in Rose Bay, Sydney, a new year of foiling will be celebrated by the first Foiling Week of the 2018. It is the first down-under Foiling Week, in the homeland of the recent foiling renaissance.
The first day of the 2017 Foiling Week was bathed in warm sunshine and humid sailing conditions on Lake Garda with the typical ‘Ora’ afternoon breeze never really building to full strength. It did however prove ideal for trial sailing onboard the armada of foiling craft on show.
The first 2017 Foiling Week event takes place from 6 to 9 July in Malcesine, Lake Garda. This year, Foiling Week adds to the usual Forum and Regatta programs, a Foiling Expo and Foiling Boat Trial & Experience Camp.
An expert in technological developments for sailing boats, especially foils, the Britanny based company will showcase its products and share ideas and knowledge with the delegates from the 10th Yacht Racing Forum in Aarhus, Denmark, on November 27-28.

The Volvo Ocean Race has solved the question of whether its future should be monohull or multihull – by opting for both. The introduction of a foil-assisted 60-foot (18.29 metre) monohull for the ocean legs plus an ultra-fast 32-50 foot (10-15m) flying catamaran for use inshore will elevate the race to the ultimate all-round test in professional sailing.
Celina Burlin is one of these young sailing athletes who is changing the future of sailing.
