Opportunities to experience the F101 are now available in the UK. Foiling World have teamed up with Simon Hiscocks from Shock Sailing, with Simon running foiling coaching using an F101 based at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. Simon, a World Class International Moth sailor and Olympic medallist talks of looking forward to using the F101.
“The F101 allows the foiling experience and coaching to be opened up to a far wider sailing audience than has currently been available through the existing boats on the market. I cannot wait to start teaching sailors to foil, who can experience this amazing aspect of our sport and then, with the F101, become foiling sailors developing their skills for the future.”
In addition to Simon running the courses in Weymouth at the WPNSA, throughout September and October the F101 is going out on the road with a “Try Foiling Course” day running in conjunction with Draycote Water Sailing Club (DWSC) on Saturday October 6th. The half day course will run from DWSC using the F101, places are limited to eight split across the day with tuition from Alan Hillman and Rob Andrews.
A copy of Alan’s “The foiling Dinghy Book”, published by Fernhurst will be included in each of the student packs at Draycote. Both Alan and Rob have extensive foiling experience, with Alan foiling for the past ten years, putting all this experience together in his foiling book. Rob has over twenty years Olympic coaching and recently project managed the GB entry that won the Red Bull Youth Americas Cup sailed on the AC45F in Bermuda. He is now a converted foiler, loving the challenge of new goals to match his foiling ability.
