With the SuperFoiler Grand Prix circuit closing out the 2018 series in Sydney this weekend we look back to an interview we held with Glenn Ashby when the fleet was mid-championship in Geelong.

At that time Euroflex, with the highly experienced foil crew of Nathan Outteridge, Glenn Ashby and Iain Jensen on board, was leaving the rest of the fleet in their wake with an unbeaten race record.

Now with another two regattas under their belts, their winning record broken at the Gold Coast and damage to the boat taking them out of racing for two days at Busselton, Euroflex’s championship lead is now only a narrow two points.

For the Sydney Event Euroflex is without Iain Jensen due to a previous sailing commitment and he is replaced by Australian Harry Mighell, winner of the inaugural international WASZP games held on Italy’s famous Lake Garda in August last year.

With less than a day to the start of the fifth and final round of the SuperFoiler Grand Prix being held on Sydney Harbour, we’re looking forward to another weekend of close racing with everything on the line with Super Series Double points; it’s winner takes all.

We spoke with Glenn Ashby in Geelong about the revolutionary SuperFoiler boat and how it compares with the AC 50’s, the A Class catamarans and moths.
