The French Windsurf Foil Cup fleet project, using the Techno Wind Foil 130, is currently being validated/finalized by the French Sailing Federation. The competition, open to all Under 15s, will be held this summer during the French National Championships. The idea of a Techno Wind Foil one design class in France is progressing quickly, with more and more clubs and individuals investing in the equipment.
The DSV (German Sailing Federation) has published new guidelines for the Olympic and pre-Olympic windsurfing. They describe a clear pathway from the entry anti-competitive windsurfing on the Techno 293 over Techno Wind Foil until the Olympic iQ FOiL equipment. Techno Wind Foil has been selected as exclusive One Design Youth Foil equipment for the U17 group in Germany to keep the costs under control for kids, parents, clubs on this journey. A program of 9 national championship races at venues all over Germany, also open to overseas riders, is planned in the coming months, with the final overall rankings calculated at the end of the year.
The FIV (Italian Sailing Federation) is also fully behind the Techno Wind Foil 130, with test/demo events taking place last weekend during their Techno 293 OD National Championships and planned all along the season. 30 young riders were able to test and compete successfully on TWF 130 boards.
