TEAM

Sue Fraser

EDUCATION DIRECTOR

 

Sailing and racing dinghies as a youth, Sue became a Senior Instructor and coordinated Ontario Sailing centres, in Toronto and Thunder Bay. Moving into keel boat racing Sue competes in multiple long distance and offshore Great Lakes and Caribbean regattas, and has won three Women's National Keel boat Championships. Becoming a foiling instructor presented itself as a possibility and became a reality  through training at Provela foiling centre in Spain. As a life long educator teaching future foilers is a good fit.

                  OUR TRAINING DINGHY - F101

 

A foiling dinghy designed specifically for sailors, who thought they would never have a foiling experience and for those who wish to progress to foiling mastery.

The F101 trimaran design provides stability when heeling to windward or leeward and when coming off the foils. This accelerates the learning process because more time is spent on the boat, not recovering from a capsize.

 

The F101 foils in as little as 6-8 knots of breeze, reaching boat speeds up to 25knots.  These factors all combine to make the F101 safe, fast, and fun.

Ross Cameron

Ross has competed, supported and organized the sport of sailing locally for over 65 years. He has been a board member of the Kingston Yacht Club, Chairman of CORK, initiated the CORK Youth Festival, developed the Ontario Sailing Race Management Training Program.

                 OUR TRAINING MULTI-HULL - WHISPER

A foiling cat designed to be stable while foiling bringing technology to the mainstream. The four point T foiling system constantly self adjusts to maintain steady and stable flying.

The Whisper is designed for two crew on trapeze to keep the righting moment at the optimal distance from the main foils.  The catamaran foils off the wind with three sails, a main, self tacking jib and asymmetrical spinnaker.

In as little as 8 knots and reaching speeds of 20+ knots this is a dynamic and exciting double-handed foiling cat.
