Foil madness

An explosion of adrenaline

This is what makes foiling a winning experience in all its forms

In July, the waters of Lake Garda became the stage for two events that brought SLAM into the focus of the new generations, who see foiling as a sporting, but also technological, academic, and experimental reference. With Foiling Week and the iQFoil European Youth Championships, the upper Lake Garda experienced 10 days of electric atmosphere, while young Italian talents won a place on the podium in the under-15, under-17, and under-19 categories in the iQFoil Continental Championships, for a total of 6 medals, 4 of which were gold.

In both events, SLAM was involved as a partner of the event or, in the case of the iQFoil, of the Italian Sailing Federation, which fielded a team of athletes in Torbole who proved their great value on the water.

Foiling Week has further developed training, innovation and sustainability, with projects that include a carbon reduction plan and the development of a micro-wind turbine to make
wind energy more accessible to a wider range of people
