I'm honoured to be chosen as one of only ten participants in this year's International Foiling Camp.
In 2016 the RNZYS developed a new pathway for youth sailors into professional multihull sailing with its ‘Performance Programme’. This programme was developed to take the top sailors from various classes and give them the skills to compete at an international level in foiling catamarans. In its first year the programme was incredibly successful, seeing six of the ten man squad selected to compete in the 2017 Youth Americas Cup, and also saw the formation of the first ever New Zealand team competing on the Extreme Sailing Series, NZ Extreme Sailing Team.
The next stage of this programme’s development was to open the course and foiling up to the wider sailing community through the launch of the International Foiling Camp. This camp is a month-long, live in, crash course in racing foiling multihulls and is limited to only ten sailors.
I’m honoured to be one of those chosen for this year’s camp from 16th Dec – 12th Jan 2018.
