Product Description

The Foiling Dinghy Book

by Alan Hillman

Since the development of the International Moth into a fully foiling dinghy there has been an explosion in the popularity of the class with some of the world’s top sailors competing in it and many others enjoying the exhilaration of ‘flying’. However there is no doubt that it is a challenge to learn to fly a Moth and other designs are being introduced which are easier to sail and provide foiling opportunities for less dedicated, larger and less agile sailors.

This book, the first to be published on dinghy foiling, explains how foils work and how to foil in the International Moth, Waszp and F101. Anyone who can sail a fast planing dinghy like the Laser should be able to foil and this book takes you through the skills and techniques required.

Starting with the theory, the book goes through rigging and launching, then low-riding sailing, tacking and gybing before moving onto flying and, of course, the foiling gybe and tack. All illustrated by hundreds of colour photographs and many diagrams.

Alan Hillman has taught hundreds of sailors to foil, including some of the top names. Through this book his expertise is available to everyone and there is no excuse not to get up on the foils and fly!
