The RYA launches its exciting new foiling courses. Spinlock provided some of our Aero Pro 50N flotation vests for the filming of the video created by the RYA to introduce sailors to the next level of sailing. Watch the video here.
Spinlock have launched the Aero Pro, a new development in personal watersports protection, perfect for foiling as well as high agility dinghy, multihull and keelboat sailing. The Aero Pro is a ergonomic 50N flotation vest, certified to the same ISO 12402-5 Buoyancy standard as our 50N PFD the WING & FOIL.
The close fitting collar, sleeves and over length waist gaiter helps to reduce wind and water resistance to ensure it is as aerodynamically efficient as possible and reduces any snagging risks.
RYA First Flights, Sustained Flights and Performance Flights will initially be run as pilot training courses and aim to bring the thrill of foiling to the masses.
When asked how it feels to foil, RYA Sailing Coach Assessor, Shaun Priestley, said: “You’ll never forget the first time you fly above the water, huge acceleration and silence makes it an amazing experience. However, sustaining flight is a more complex skill, similar to learning to use the harness in windsurfing – you’re sure to experience a few crashes!”
