Foiling is the new sailing! Learn how to foil the Waszp on Lake Garda at Stickl Foiling Camp. TRY & FLY in weekend or weekly courses. With radio coaching from the trainer boat we bring you to fly!

 

Foiling on the Waszp

Together with professionals of the Moth-Class, in summer 2014 we developed a training concept that combines the methodology to learn the foiling technique and the adequate organization of trainings in an ideal manner.

This training concept was very successfully implemented in 2015. The coach supervises a team of 2-4 students. Since the water training is very intense and requires a good physical condition, students are taking turns between sailing the Waszp and observing from the boat together with the coach.

Since 2016 we offer FOILING to ambitious dinghy sailors. Therefore we offer weekly and weekend-courses from April to October.

The spotlight will lie on trainings with the WASZP, a new one-design foiling dinghy. The WASZP allows an easier entry into foiling without perfect sailing skills on dinghies as needed on the MACH 2 Moth. Furthermore, the risk of injury is greatly reduced and therefore makes foiling accessible for ’everyone’. Still, the WASZP flies at speeds of more than 20 knots and conveys an incredible feeling of flight.

Nearly 100% of all participants from 2016 to 2018 reached the aim of course level 3 and are successfully flying above the surface!

 

Course program

Each sailor is equipped with a waterproof radio helmet. By that the student gets all the necessary instructions just in the right moment to immediately implement these. This technology has been used very successfully since 20 years at Stickl Sportcamp in sailing lessons and guarantees rapid progress during the foil training.

Prerequisites:

We recommend foiling for very experienced dinghy sailors with a feeling for instable skiffs only. Additionally good physical condition, agility and endurance are required. Get ready to learn sailing all over again!
