Not content with hydrofoiling Moths, Laser dinghies or Mini Transat keelboats, the flying craze hits junior sailing with the news that Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden have figured out how to foil an Optimist dinghy.
Seldén has provided the blocks taking Opti sailing to a whole new level.
Hydrofoils are added to lift the boat, decreasing drag and allowing greater speeds. After experimenting and testing in a ship research and development facility in Gothenburg, Sweden, the dinghy was tried out at sea for the first time.
