C-Fly to attempt Foiling Week on Lake Garda

From, Saturday June 14th 2014, Author: Philip Kenchington, Location: United Kingdom

Extreme 40 Cowes week 2010

The British foiler, C-FLY, will be participating at the Foiling Week, Lake Garda, Italy over 8-10th July.

Lake Garda is expected to be a great venue to demonstrate the versatility of the C-FLY concept, alongside other foiling craft.

With sailing courses set to maximise the foiling action near the beach and spectator boats close at hand; the event will build on the success of the AC72 racing in San Francisco.

Foilers tacking to windward and with closing speeds exceeding 30 knots, the blistering performance gains from foils will be all too apparent.

The event is being attended by top sailors, designers and builders, eager to share the latest foiling innovations and their experiences. The morning forums will be followed by on the water action demonstrating the advances being made in everything foiling.

If the wind and waves get up spectators will see C-FLY’s unique 4 x 4 capabilities on show, exhibiting breath-taking pace and inherent stability, in equal measure.

C-FLY is a unique British endeavour to revolutionise high speed sailing and recapture the world’s deep-water sailing records. Developed by leading aerospace engineers, the technology has been proven with a 7.6m prototype, C-Fly Coastal.

TFW Forum sneak peek: C-FLY Ocean

The first C-FLY Ocean version will be a 21m hydrofoil trimaran. It uses the very latest hydrofoil technology developed by the C-FLY team, and state-of-the-art materials to create the ultimate transatlantic ocean racer.

To reduce costs and development time C-FLY Ocean uses well proven rig and hull design from established performance multi-hulls such as the ORMA 60s. For safety the craft is able to withstand damage to or loss of the hydrofoils and is designed to perform well in hull borne mode if conditions dictate.
