Red Bull Foiling Generation Racing
Back-to-Back US Qualifier and World Finals
October 15+16 and 22+23
A super exciting 11-day foiling event will be hosted by Sail Newport this coming weekend with racing to be held along the western shoreline of Fort Adams in Newport, Rhode Island. Clinic racing starts on October 12 to prepare sailors for the US Qualifiers October 14-16. Sailors will compete to earn a berth at the Worlds which follows October 21-23. This is a “don’t miss” and thrilling event to watch, set up in a similar “Sailing Village” set up to the Volvo Ocean Race and World Match Racing Tour.
Red Bull Foiling Generation is about providing talented young sailors, ages 16 – 20 with the opportunity to advance their careers through top-notch hydrofoil racing. The competitions serve as training waters for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, which caters to competitors ages 19-25. Both competitions train youth sailors from all over the globe on smaller versions of catamaran racers with foils, like those used in one of the world’s most famous sailing competition – America’s Cup.
The Sail Newport Sailing Center at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island will host both the Red Bull Foiling Generation US Qualifier on October 15 and 16 and the World Finals for the world to see on October 22 and 23. The seaside location is home to many sailing events and regattas because of its natural amphitheater on Narragansett Bay and legendary sailing waters.
Each weekend, competition is scheduled to take place on Saturday 10 AM – 5 PM and Sunday from 10 AM – 1 PM, followed by an Awards Ceremony.
