People travelled from around the globe to compete in this new discipline to determine who is the best foil racer.

Every day a school day with new learning areas including the use of the foil kites with the foil board on a big fleet start line. Tactics played a huge part as well as the skill to keep the kites in the air especially near the edges of the lake where the course was set. After 4 days of racing Olly took 2nd to Johnny Heineken from san Francsisco while Guy took a solid 8th Place & 1st Youth. Steph won the womans division and beat the current Foil World champion from France. The team packed and went straight to the Formula World Championships in Istanbul.
