Come and see these great new boats by Nacra Sailing at this years' RYA Dinghy Show, in association with Yachts & Yachting and Suzuki. Pay a visit to the UK Nacra 15 Class Association stand (W2) where they will be showcasing the all new Nacra 15 FCS (Flight Control System), while on the Spinlock stand (B80) they will be showcasing the singlehanded Nacra 15 FCS ONE.

Following the evolution of the Olympic Nacra 17 Class, Nacra Sailing introduces the full foiling Nacra 15 FCS multihull offering the ultimate sailing experience.

"The sail plan is the same as the foundation WS Nacra 15 "C" Foil configuration, with just the FCS foiling package being plug and play as part of a new boat package or an additional option for existing Nacra 15 owners", explained Bob Hensen, Director of Sales at Nacra Sailing.

"Our sport is evolving and we are innovating with that development, and we are now able to offer sailor led options for high performance multihull sailing", Bob added.

In close partnership with leading design house, Morrelli & Melvin, Nacra Sailing are also working on a new design of an L-rudder, including kick-up system.

Nacra Sailing is dedicated to maximize safety in multihull sailing and especially when considering our youth. In 2015, the Nacra 15 was designed from scratch primarily to the World Sailing criteria to become the official Youth Multihull.

The fast growing Nacra 15 Class in its C foil configuration has become an on-going and integral fleet of the Youth Sailing World Championships and uniquely the Youth Olympic Games.

The Nacra 15 WS, offers high performance, super competitive racing with speeds up to 20 knots and beyond. A performer in its own right, the Nacra 15 is also a smaller version of the original Olympic Nacra 17, Mixed Multihull, creating a true Olympic Pathway.

Boys and girls working hard to represent their home countries can live their dreams at the World Sailing Youth Sailing Championships and Youth Olympic Games. Equipment supplied events organized at the coolest World venues, all possible while Nacra Sailing will supply and support their provided Nacra 15 WS.

"Importantly, the Nacra 15 WS is not only about International racing and making new friends around the World, it's also about having fun locally whilst just enjoying the thrill of teenage performance sailing. Giving our young athletes a great, healthy and varied foundation in life's skills", Bob concluded.

To find out more about the Nacra in all its guises and to check out the new Nacra 15 FCS and Nacra 15 FCS ONE make sure you pay a visit to the Nacra Sailing stand at the show.

The RYA Dinghy Show takes place over the weekend of 02-03 March at Alexandra Palace, London.
