The Foiling Week Forum is a unique event that creates opportunity for the best foiling regatta sailors to share knowledge and information with designers/builders and enable technicians and theorists to put into practice their projects, generating an exchange of feedback that accelerates the development process of foiling.
This is why The Foiling Week events are so popular, it is not only racing, not only a show, it is a real moment of growth for the foiling community of ‘Thinkers and Tinkerers”
The Gurit Forum allows to meet the most advanced Australian Designers, Boat Builders and Sailor sharing their experiences, ideas and future paths. Starting on the morning of Friday 12th people like Charles Viviani, Jack Macartney, Ian Ward, Brett Ellis, James Brewer and others will present last development in foiling industry.
Topics at this Gurit Forum will be ‘Aussie Designers’ and ‘AC Design’ that has divided in separate sessions and, as usual, at the end of each session a round table on the same topic.
