Sopraventus Thanksgiving "Learn to WASZP" Academy

Tier 3 | Training

Clearwater Community Sailing, Clearwater, FL, United States

18 November 2023 - 26 November 2023

Event Information:

Sopraventus Foiling Clinics will build a new generation of young foiling sailors who aspire to compete in the main “high speed” sailing competitions such as SailGP and America’s Cup.

We will have the possibility to Sail and Foil with one of the best Waszp coaches and sailors in the world. The Academy will be entirely focused on giving a chance to young and talented sailors to approach the present and future of the sailing world, having a safe and super-exciting foiling experience and improving their sailing/foiling skills while “flying” on the water.

Sopraventus will then extend to the Most focused and talented sailors the invitations to join the permanent WASZP team with the objective of attending the first official regatta in Jensen Beach and Miami in December 2023

The Lear to Waszp Academy’s initial goals are :

  • Foiling theory basics
  • Safety on a foiling boat
  • How the Waszp works
  • Rules on the water
  • Boat speed Techniques
  • Foiling maneuvers
  • Briefing and de-briefing about the sailing days
  • Videos and analysis with the coach

All the Academies will be led by one of the most skilled Athlete/Coach in the world: ETTORE BOTTICINI

Individual WASZP charter per day is $150, shared Waszp per day is $40

Beginners will be initially using only one Waszp and take turns sailing on it ( the first 6/7 times of Waszp sailing can be very energy consuming, so we expect to take turns on the boat for 20/30 mins each).

To sign up for the event ( Min 2 days ) is $300 + CC Fees. The final balance ( additional coaching days and charter boat) will be calculated and charged at the end of the session once we know if a shared or personal Waszp was assigned and the number of attended days.
