The Flying Phantom joins the GC32 on Team Tilt’s 2016 calendar. The Red Bull Foiling Generation will come to Geneva in the summer – sailors aged 16 to 20 will race on Flying Phantoms from July 1 to 3, at the Société Nautique de Genève.
Team Tilt is very happy to use this opportunity as training for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup 2017. The teams will be selected by double medalists Roman Hagara et Hans-Peter Steinacher. Team Tilt’s skipper Sébastien Schneiter is very motivated to take part in the event : « It’s the perfect occasion to gather all the young multihull sailors on one event, with amazing boats. This will give us the chance to sail against the best swiss sailors of our age, and have a lot of fun! »
The fourth event of the Red Bull Foiling Generation is open to Swiss sailors. The winner of the regatta in Geneva will be qualified for the Final event in Newport (USA), from October 20 to 22.
