We are proud to offer a new way to sail - on hydrofoils! This class is recommended for students of ages 15-17 who have advanced sailing skills and seamanship skills.
With a variety of sail sizes 5.5 - 8.5 square meters we can fit the boat to the sailor. Successful foiling requires good technique, and a lot of practice. Students should expect to sail in all weather conditions with safety being our top priority.
Students are not required to bring their own boats.
EBSF has a fleet of 6 single handed foiling sailboats as well as helmets available that students will be able to use and will offer clinics with specially trained instructors.
If you have questions regarding equipment or questions about the boats, please contact: Foiling@eastbaysailingfoundation.org
Our new trainer boats allow safe and fun environment with trained coaches.
Whichever course is right for you there will be an instructor and a coach boat with you. You will stay in communication with the instructor by head set and be able to view video footage to observe your progress
