Since the last announcement, we've had quite a few confirmations from the Forum key role players. People with deep knowledge on the foiling engineering, whose experience and know-how will be shared to the audience. Among them Kevin Hall from last America's Cup Challenger of Record Artemis Racing, where he worked as head of performance and instruments department, Giorgio Provinciali, AC 2010 winner with BMW Oracle Racing, he was appendage design and performance prediction program specialist for Luna Rossa Challenge 2013, Tom Speer, OTUSA Aero&Sail project leader winning AC34 in San Francisco, Chris Edward and Philip Kenchigton from C-Fly Hydrofoil Catamaran. These names are just a few, you can find the updated list on our website.

In order to best manage the foiling boats on water trials, we created an online registration form for those who intend to actually jump on the boats and literally fly. During the first few days of registration we've had a huge feedback from people interested in attending the foiling week. Among them some designer, many sailors, various actors of the industry, all interested in coming to Lake Garda and sharing their know-how and learning about the evolution of the foiling world. You can sign up here.
