The foiling trimaran, F101, launches at this weekend’s RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show!
The much-talked about Foiling trimaran F101 will be publicly launched this weekend, 4th-5th March, in London at the RYA Dinghy Exhibition at Alexandra Palace. While the F101 became public last November, and some photos and videos have since been released from the prototype testing phase this is the first opportunity for people to come and see the F101 in the flesh.
Meet the F101 team on Harken stand, G8 in the West Hall right next to the RYA Suzuki Main Stage!
The F101 on display is boat number two, with number three also close to completion, and build slots up to number ten already reserved. Tooling and component specification for the production version are nearly complete, and the first production boats are expected to be delivered in May 2017.
Foiling World, the marketing business behind the F101, are working in close collaboration with the Designer Ron Price, the builder White Formula, and rig and hardware suppliers, Selden Masts, Hyde Sails and Harken.
Foiling World are setting up Coaching Clinics to welcome newcomers to foiling and help them learn to sail the F101. Initially there are two courses that can be chosen which are open to anybody who can safely sail a Laser (or equivalent boat) in 15 knots of breeze.
The courses are:
1. Try Flying: a half day introductory course
2. Learn to Fly: a 2-day course

“The response since we went public last November has been incredible, we have had enquiries and interest from all over the world, and we are very confident that this will be a very busy year. Clearly foiling sailboats are becoming very visible at the top end of our sport, but what we believe we have achieved with F101, is an affordable boat, that can be enjoyed by a much wider group of sailors.”
Alan Hillman, Director of Foiling World
