Alot has happened in the quest for high-speed sailing in boats of all sizes during the past few years. In 2010, the America’s Cup made a very convincing argument for wing sails. And the Moth sailing dinghy has been building a new class configuration with their highspeed, high-tech foiling system. Then came the 2013 America’s Cup where both technologies were used to stage a spectacular regatta.

Here in Charlotte Harbor, you can try these technologies out. If you’re an experienced dinghy sailor, and gutsy, come try out the foiling kit at the Charlotte Harbor Community Sailing Center this spring and summer. We only have our first shipment of foils, so only a limited number of reservations will be accepted and scheduled at this time.
