The growth of foiling is the most exciting thing to happen to dinghy sailing and windsurfing in recent years. As well as specialist foiling boats and boards, conversion kits have brought fast, flying fun to sailors seeking speed.
The RYA has launched the SAILfoiling and WINDfoiling courses to enable you to learn how to take part safely in this exciting activity and this book is the official supporting text to the RYA’s Foiling courses and will help you progress by focusing on the fundamentals of foiling.
It outlines the key skills required for both SAILfoiling and WINDfoiling with first half of the book dealing with foiling equipment, control systems and set up as well as launching, leaving, returning and landing. It then goes on to explain how to help readers get started with their first flights and once that’s mastered that there are more tips to aid sustained flight. There is also some incredibly useful information to help finesse tacking and gybing.
The only book to cover foiling for both sailors and windsurfers, “Foiling” will get you ready for take-off!
