After two successful editions in 2014 and 2015 held at Fraglia Vela Malcesine on Lake Garda in Italy, The Foiling Week has announced that in 2016 the Foiling Week will also hold an additional event in the USA.

In its third year Foiling Week Association has decided to follow up on the numerous overseas requests to hold a Foiling Week event and as a result, Sail Newport, will co-organize the second act of the Foiling Week Series 2016, from September 8th to 11th.

Newport will hold races including the Moth North-American Championship and the A Class Catamaran Pre-Nationals. The C Class multihulls and a lot of prototypes will fly during the week from 8th to 11th September.
