An introduction to dinghy foiling enabling most competent sailors to get on the foils and fly!
The foiling International Moth has seen an explosion in the popularity of the class, however there is no doubt that it
is a challenge to learn to fly a Moth and other designs are being introduced which are easier to sail and provide foiling opportunities for less dedicated, larger and less agile sailors.
This book explains how foils work and how to foil the International Moth, Waszp and F101. Starting with the theory, the book goes through rigging and launching, then low-ride sailing, tacking and gybing before moving onto flying and, of course, the foiling gybe and tack. All illustrated by hundreds of colour photographs and many diagrams.
