Even the monohulls in the Vendée Globe Race have them now, which says a lot... Flying boat enthusiasts now have an event which has become essential, with the ‘Semaine Affoilante’, whose third edition will be held from 5th to 9th April 2017. A meeting for dinghies, surfers, windsurfers, kite surfers and of course, multihulls...all equipped with foils; Brittany’s Baie de Quiberon will be alive, and will provide a setting worthy of these exceptional machines and their incredible speed potential.

For five days, this event is the unique opportunity for professionals as well as amateurs to exchange ideas and experiences of a fast-growing practice, and to discover what is happening at the cutting edge of the foiling world. Finally, the ‘Semaine Affoilante’ is also the opportunity to see and experience some incredible speed runs over 500m. To be seen at least once in your lifetime!

The ‘Semaine Affoilante’ is open to everyone. The runs are carried out by experienced riders, top-level champions...but the public can also test the foiling machines, as long as they have a good level in windsurfing, kite surfing, dinghies, etc.
