As the winter season unfolds, 69F Sailing, the pioneering force in foiling sailboats, proudly announces the simultaneous engagement of three fleets across three continents.

The dynamic sailing company is set to make waves in Dubai, Barcelona, and Miami, FL, with a series of thrilling events catering to a diverse range of sailing enthusiasts.

In the heart of the Middle East, 69F Sailing's first fleet has cast anchor in Dubai, where the inaugural event is set to kick off this week. The enchanting waters of Dubai will witness the prowess of 69F sailboats, providing a unique and exhilarating experience. It is not the first time that the only one-design foiling monohull for crews is touching base in the Middle East. One 69F was in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, during the 37th America's Cup Preliminary Regatta Presented by NEOM, to let spectators and VIP have a go on a foiling boat, similar to the ones used in the oldest sport trophy of the world, but not as complex and so representing 'foiling for everyone'.

Meanwhile, on the Mediterranean shores, a second fleet is currently stationed in Spain, ready to for the Barcelona Foiling Winter Series. This exciting event is not only a showcase of foiling finesse but also an opportunity for 69F owners to demonstrate their sailing skills on an international stage. The winter circuit is open to both 69F owners and to sailors who would like to experience foiling for the first time by chartering one of 69F Sailing's boat.

Two key highlights include the Youth Foiling Gold Cup, tailored for sailors under 25, and the 69F Club Super Series, open to sailing enthusiasts of all ages with particular attention to a challenge among Yacht Clubs. These events promise high-speed excitement and a showcase of the cutting-edge technology behind 69F foiling sailboats in one of the world's best sailing venue, particularly in the North Hemisphere winter time.
