A recap //
What: The very first championship for the one-design, multihull foiling TF35s, which follows the format of the Décision 35 competition, but this time with the added dimension of flight over water.
All the further info is here.
Who: Seven teams made up of six team members (total team weight limited to 500kg)
Where: Lake Geneva (Switzerland) for the first five events of the season, then to Scarlino (Italy) for the finale.
When: From April to September, the 2021 TF35 Trophy will include seven events: five Grand Prix and two Lake Geneva classics (the Genève-Rolle-Genève and the Bol d'Or Mirabaud). Click here for the calendar
How: During the Grand Prix, the teams compete during three days in successive races of about twenty-minute duration and which are sailed around buoys. During the Lake Geneva classics, a coastal course is completed with a start from Geneva, a mark to be rounded (in Rolle or Le Bouveret at the end of the lake) and then a return to the finish line in Geneva.
