Foiling Class Options
Foiling classes can consist of Skeetas, Nikkis, Wings or a combination. Ages range from 13 years old to adults who are capable of single handedly sailing dinghies such as laser/Ilcas, 420s, sunfish, etc. EBSF provides helmets for your safety, but if you would like to bring your own, please feel free to. Email the program director Trish Sellon at ProgramDirector@eastbaysailingfoundation.org or call (401)257-6774 to schedule a time for foiling. We are happy to work with your schedule to meet your needs.
EBSF has partnered with Josh Angulo, a world-renowned windsurf foiler and his son Noah Angulo, an up-and-coming pro wing foiler, to teach our wing foiling classes.
They have traveled from Cape Verde to Bristol RI in hopes to inspire so many others to try this amazing sport.
The Skeeta and Nikki
Whether you’re looking to take your first steps in foiling, or an experienced thrill-seeker, EBSF has a foiling sailboat for you! This class is perfect for students 15+ who are capable of sailing a dinghy single-handedly. With safety being our top priority we provide detailed instructional lessons, helmets, and BB-Talk'n communication devises that allow the instructor to communicate directly with students through a headset.
Skeeta is the latest foiling dinghy that incorporates all-around performance. Sailors are no longer left waiting for a breeze to go sailing. The Skeeta is fun and capable of sailing in all safe wind ranges. It is more stable than narrow skiffs and can be sailed without hydrofoils, making it more versatile as an all-purpose dinghy. The hull is simple, robust, unsinkable, and quick to rig.
Skeeta is suited to sailors of all levels: from beginners to professionals. Add the foils and it is a highly-developed, but forgiving, foiling machine with amazing performance.
Nikki is a brand new dinghy designed and built for kids and lighter sailors.
Nikki is a fully open, modern scow designed for learning to sail and fun, competitive sailing. It’s capable of planing upwind, bringing a whole new level of fun to youth sailing – a new thrill to captivate and entrench young sailors into the sport for life!
