Foiling courses

Learn to foil with the National Sailing Scheme

New for 2018 and still in its pilot phase, we are excited to announce the introduction of foiling to our  Sailing Scheme.

The concept of foiling might still be a magical and unbelievable concept, but the reality is that this once niche concept is spreading with great enthusiasm and excitement.

The new courses, starting with a taster (First Flights), enable you to progress from first foiling take off, to sustaining flights and entering the world of foiling transitions.
