The start of a new Era
Posted On: 07/06/2020
The Israeli Team had their first iQFOiL Race and they are looking really strong already.
A new era has started in the Israeli windsurfing history last weekend with the first iQFoil event that took place In Sdot Yam Sailing Club to launch the Israeli campaign to Paris 2024.
The riders were thrilled using the new gear. First day was tough with 20 knots wind , all riders used the foil. The second day was with light wind but the riders were sailing pretty fast on the foils completing total of 8 races in two days.
13 riders were racing in the men's division and 5 in the womens.
The young riders were showing great talent on the foil winning both mens and womens and leaving the Olympic team members behind.
