Glide Free Foiling Laser wins major international award, Yachts & Yachting, 2014 'Dinghy of the Year' !!
Foils normally sold on there own. Please enquire about bolting these onto your Laser boat purchase.
Glide Free Design is pleased to announce that the prestigious international "Yachts & Yachting" magazine has recently awarded "Dinghy of the Year" for 2014 to Glide Free Foils for the Laser sailing dinghy.
Foiling has taken yet another step closer to mainstream sailing with the launch of a unique foiling kit for the world's most popular Laser sailing dinghy.
Foiling enables a boat’s hull to rise clear of the water with only the foils making contact with the water. Foiling at high speed enables apparent wind sailing which allows boats to travel at speeds in excess of the wind speed.
The Glide Free kit contains everything needed to go foiling on your current Laser dinghy, as well as a custom kit bag. They are easy to fit and remove; no modifications are needed to your existing boat. The foils have automatic control with no need to tweak settings on the water and you can launch in knee deep water.
It is exciting times for Glide Free with enquiries coming from sailors all over the world wanting to be the first to try foiling on a Laser and see who can go the fastest.
Please contact us with your top speed (with visible proof) and we shall add you to our speed leader board (on our website) and the winner in a year will receive a prize from www.sailboats.co.uk
