Foiling World started gathering experience about dinghy foiling 10 years ago when Alan started teaching foiling on International Moths. It soon became apparent that Moths were not the best place to start your foiling journey! Out of this teaching experience came the design of the F101. A few design features determined the specification:
Length to stop the platform capsizing
Width to give you easy righting moment
Ease of sailing with more time foiling than capsizing in the early stages
Access to the water with a launching trolley and conventional rig
All carbon construction: main hull, foils, floats, beams, 2 piece mast.
Very simple, well thought out control systems.
All up weight: 75 kg.
Sail area: 9.0m2 main + 5.5m2 gennaker.
Target crew weight range: 60-150 kg.
Take off wind speed: 7 kts.
Target boat speed range: 10-25 kts.
