Red Bull Foiling Generation is about providing talented young sailors with the opportunity to advance their careers through high-level hydrofoil racing. Qualified youth sailors, born in 1996 through 1999 can apply as individuals or part of a two-person team. Those selected will first be trained by two of the most accomplished competitive sailors in the world, Double gold medalists, Austrians Roman Hagara and Hans Peter Steinacher, who are also the event’s founders.
Applications are now being accepted for the competition held October 11-16, 2016 followed by a series World Final October 18 - 23, 2016 at the Sail Newport Sailing Center at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island.
The event will be sailed in 18’ Flying Phantom catamarans which are designed with hydrofoil technology. The hydrofoil technology amplifies speed on the boats because one hull lifts out of the water, which alleviates drag and enables maximum boat speed. As one hull is out of the water and “foiling”, the J-shaped foil keeps contact
How to Apply and Regulations:
All applicants must be an experienced sailor and born between 1996 through 1999. They can apply as an individual or part of a two-person team.
