Written by
Windfoiling clinics at Burton Sailing Club Windfoiling clinics at Burton Sailing Club

You may have seen some of our windsurf members flying around the reservoir this winter! Foiling has become the new 'big thing' in sailing with rapid growth in all areas.

To continue the development of this area of the club and not wishing to rest on our Laurels of being voted the 'NWF windsurfing club of the year 2018', we are trying to source funding for a range of intermediate windsurf kit, with the hope of running more intermediate Windsurfing and Windfoiling 'first flight' sessions here at Burton sailing Club during the summer.... Watch this space! 

For those that have already progressed to the higher levels, we are delighted to announce that IQ foil class are now running regular foil training for our Olympic pathway sailors.

Truly exciting times for our young windsurfers!
