Goal: master the art of foiling
Team Tilt started sailing on a GC32 foiling multihulls in 2016. The objective of this new platform is to allow the team to improve its flying skills and to master the art of foiling ahead of the next Youth America’s Cup. The GC32 is initially only used as a training platform, mainly on Lake Geneva. At the summer 2016, the team races more intensely, using this platform to prepare for international events including the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup in Bermuda. It finishes second overall of the GC32 Racing Tour 2016, behind Franck Cammas’ team.
Conceived by French businessman Laurent Lenne and designed by Dr Martin Fischer, the GC32 is a scaled-down version of the boats used in the America’s Cup. Fast, exciting, spectacular and fun, they are amongst the world’s fastest catamarans. The GC32s have their own circuit; the boats have also been selected for the Extreme Sailing Series.
