If you can sail you can foil!

Stand C88, RYA Volvo Dinghy Show

At this year’s RYA Volvo Dinghy Show, Ovington Boats will show a concept dinghy using the foil system by Tomahawk Foils. The boat incorporates the surface running, ventilated hydrofoil invented and patented by Tomahawk Foils.

The Phil Morrison designed boat brings foiling to a wider audience, fully exploiting the forgiving characteristics of the new concept and enabling most dinghy sailors to foil after minimal practice. It also enables sailors with a wider range of weight to get airborne as opposed to the traditional lightweights that sail the International Moth.

The design has been tested, developed and refined by well-known, Weymouth sailor and dinghy manufacturer, L Jenkins. He says: “The Tomahawk foil takes all the complications out of hydro foiling and offers a whole new sailing experience.”

On hand at the show will be Linton as well as Chris Turner, Dave Hall and Simon Maguire from Ovington Boats.
