Canadian Foiling Centre is a not-for-profit company created to promote foiling participation through courses and events. All foiling vessels - kites, wingfoiling, windfoilers, dinghies, and multi-hulls are included in the vision to develop their sports.
PRESIDENT & 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. Through training at Provela foiling centre in Spain she became a certified foiling instructor. As a life long educator, teaching future foilers is a good fit. FOILKingston/FORK is a result of her dedication to promoting foiling in Canada.
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.
Do a TRY-to-FLY 2hour or a LEARN-to-FLY 3day session or arrange a private lesson.
We are mourning the recent loss of Ross Cameron, a founding Director of CFC (Canadian Foiling Center). Ross encouraged us to rise above the waves and fly. He saw foiling as the next great evolution in the sport of sailing. His vision was to make Kingston a centre for foiling – the future of sailing. By being a cornerstone of building the Canadian Foiling Centre, that goal is closer to reality. With his wealth of knowledge, experience, enthusiasm, and skill he guided us through the turbulent waters of organizing and running FOILKingston /FORK regattas which brought four foiling disciplines together in Canada for the first time ever. We hope to be able to continue his dream and honour his wishes to have youth and adult development in foiling as part of his sailing legacy in Kingston. Our dear friend's contribution to sailing in Kingston and Canada is immeasurable and will be greatly missed.
