Introducing Foiling at Mark Warner
In dinghy foiling your boat is equipped with hydrofoils to lift the hull out of the water and allow it to sail on the foils. This enables the boat to reach higher speeds and sail in much lighter winds than traditional dinghy sailing.
Sailors must use their weight to control the boat and maintain its balance while sailing on the foils, which requires an advanced level of skill and experience.
Dingy foils equipment: Glide Free foils on either RS Aeros or Lasers
Windsurf foiling is windsurfing that involves using a specialised board and sail setup that allows the board to lift out of the water and ride on a hydrofoil, which is a wing-shaped fin underneath the board. The hydrofoil creates lift and reduces drag, allowing the windsurfer to glide smoothly and quickly over the surface of the water, even in very light wind conditions.
Windsurf foiling requires a certain level of skill and experience, as it can be more challenging to control the board and maintain balance while riding on the foil.

Foiling (dingy & windsurf) at our resorts
Foiling (both Dinghy & Windsurf), are available in Aeolian Village, Lemnos and Phokaia. Whilst RYA courses won’t be on offer, private introductory sessions will be available subject to availability & operational demands.
For those that can foil, guest competency will be checked before equipment is provided.
