It has taken just one hour for the 8.2m section of the Foiling Week WASZP 8.2m fleet to sell out! This is the second major event that has sold out in the space of months. The International WASZP Games in Norway also sold out at 180 boats in the space of 48 hours.

There are still some spots available in our WASZP_X5.8m and 6.9m fleet. Remember to pay the entry fee to secure your spot.

One of the more impressive aspects of the Foiling Week fleet is that 19 countries are represented across the entry list. We are seeing plenty of excitement in Europe, but it is also great to see competitors from Australia and North America making the trip in good numbers.

This demonstrates the strength of the class globally at the moment, with record fleets also occurring domestically. With 120+ events on the calendar around the world in 2024 and more to be added in 2025, it is an incredible time to be a WASZP Sailor. Many people are currently purchasing NEW boats ahead of a bumper season, and now is the time to get a NEW boat in your hands, as the second-hand market is red hot!

Check RACEHUB for all the events around the world.
