2017 Special - Foiling Experience

In 2017, the BMW Sail Racing Academy addressed "the third dimension of sailing" and offered its first ever foiling module as part of the training programme.
Exciting content and the first "attempts at flying" off the wonderful coast of Palma de Mallorca under the guidance of our experienced trainers were guaranteed.

Foiling: One of the things you have to experience to feel it.

LEARN FROM THE BEST.

Coaches BMW Sail Racing Academy

LEARN FROM THE BEST.

The BMW Sail Racing Academy is directed by Italian Pro Roberto Ferrarese, a winner of the Admiral’s Cup, several World & European Championships, and a three-time America’s Cup athlete. He says: "No doubt, theory and tactics are one main pillar of the BMW Sail Racing Academy, but in the end, every second spent on the water increases your feeling for the boat and improves your way to excellence."
