Foil-Lab

The first step on the foiling journey for any sailor, windsurfer, wingsurfer or kiteboarder who wants to experience foiling is to participate in a Foil-Lab, delivered at a RFBYC, by an accredited Foil-Lab Coach.

Foil-Labs are an one-day introductory session, focussing on the fundamental skills required to begin foiling and assists participants to understand what is happening with the foil below the surface of the water, and how to control it. Foil-Labs are delivered with a short hour-long theory session first, which is vital before progressing to the on-water familiarisation utilising foiling equipment and a Rib.

A Foil-Lab is relevant no matter which foiling class a sailor chooses (Wind-Foil, Wing-Foil, Kite-Foil Sail-Foil) and provides a safe space for participants to learn and interact with a new type of sailing experience and equip themselves with new knowledge to take on any foiling class.

During a Foil-Lab, participants learn the fundamentals that drive a hydrofoils performance, as well learn about the body and physical relationships that offer a path to proficiency. Mastering the basics gives more options to have more fun, more often. It also allows participants the foundation skills to chase performance in a range of modern performance sailing classes in a fun and fulfilling way.
