It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s the flying 10ft Pocket Foiler!
Some have called it the “Optimist 2.0” – it’s a boat designed for sailors who weigh about 80-180 lbs. With the ability to sail in displacement, planing, or foiling modes, the designers envision the 10 ft Pocket Foiler as the pathway to foiling for Opti & Open Skiff sailors. It’s for young sailors wanting to eventually move up to the next step of the Waszp, Skeeta, or Moth.
A number of teenage and adult sailors tested the new design recently on Garda Lake.
