BOATS2020 was set to be the UK debut of  ‘The Foiling Dinghy’ along with the World debut of the AS Tender which are both made by  Advanced Sailing Technologies (AST) and distributed by

The Foiling Dinghy has been designed by AST sailing technologies to be an easy to foil sailing dinghy, purpose-built to foil with a dual foil system. It’s affordable, lightweight and easy to transport, launch and handle on land.

“The new dinghy is designed to be stable and forgiving in flight, yet exciting to sail, and aimed at the club sailor. Complexity is reduced to a minimum, with dual foils that are self-adjusting and self-tacking, giving it the ease of sailing as a laser, the lightness of an RS Aero, and enables safe and fun foiling performance”, commented Thilo Keller, MD from AST.

As well as showcasing these great new dinghies The Show will also see the re-launch of ‘Dynamic-Sailing’ following the pandemic, headed up by Stephen Blake who will be working with AST sailing technologies to promote The Foiling Dinghy in the UK. The Dynamic-Sailing stand will also be showcasing Multi Mover and PDMS trailers.

With over 40 years of sailing experience, Stephen commented: “It’s a great time to launch The Foiling Dinghy in the UK, I was so impressed with the boat at the Dusseldorf boat show in January 2020 I knew that we had to showcase the boat in the UK.  For me, German design and engineering has delivered a foiling boat that can be enjoyed by the majority that can sail a sailing dinghy, if you can sail a laser 1, you can go foiling with The Foiling Dinghy.”

Drop by the stand to chat with Stephen who will be on hand with the people that have sailed the foiling dinghy, to answer any queries you may have.

Visitors can enter a free prize draw to be in with a chance of winning a day on the water in The Foiling Dinghy at Carsington Sailing Club, in Ashbourne or Netley Sailing club in Hampshire, there are three places up for grabs. While a special show promotion will give the first five people to place an order at the show the chance to have the boat delivered anywhere in the UK with a full boat package worth up to a £500 saving.
