Following the takeover of Jean Pierre Dick's ETF26 business in the spring of 2022 and the current strong momentum of the ETF26 SERIES sailing events, Pierre Picot and his company Anemo Sailing are relaunching the production of these fabulous foiling catamarans.

This year marked a turning point for the ETF26 Series circuit with the arrival of 4 new women's teams, including 3 from professional SailGP teams (New Zealand, Denmark, Great Britain).

The objective for the 2023 season is to sail the entire existing fleet of 11 catamarans (9 in 2022). According to the interest that is currently being shown, all existing boat should compete in the ETF26 Series events! That's the reason why it is necessary to restart the production of new units to continue to develop the fleet and events in Europe.

A first unit is planned for the spring and subsequent units could be delivered in the second half of 2023 depending on order confirmations. The objective is also to improve the performance of the catamarans to make them take off and fly faster and longer. To achieve this, developments are currently under way on the rudders and foils. Trials will be carried out next season to test new appendages.

For any information concerning the purchase or charter of an ETF26 catamaran, please contact Pierre PICOT.
