    Great interview with Amac taking everyone through his thought process of the MACH2 and how it remains an accessible, competitive platform for people all through the fleet.

    This is the WASZP SLALOM Course. You travel through Gates similar to downhill SLALOM skiing. The wind strength and angle changes makes it impossible for the boats to sail directly to marks downwind as the angles are always changing. This way it opens up passing lanes and allows the boats to sail their correct angle downwind.

  9. WASZP are currently selling for $16,850 delivered in Australia including taxes and duties, just to dispell that comment. This is off the official manufacturer website.
  10. Ever watched a one design foiling race? 60+ WASZPs around a course is just as intense as Moth racing, purely because its closer, super competitve and it is fast enough to still get the heart pumping. I would hardly say the WASZP has not kicked on? All fleets around the world have shown significant growth, honing in on 800 boats in 2 1/2 years, in Australia they are outnumbering Moths 2-1 in every market except NSW and even then there is a similar amount of boats sailing in Sydney albeit spread out. Given the fact the WASZP and also the UFO are 2 and a bit years into a journey I would say they have made significant in-roads. Plus the culture of the WASZP is what is getting a lot of people in, its fun to sail, its fun to race and the people are fun to be around. When you are at an event, you can go to the pub or spend time with your family and friends, roll-up an hour before the start and go sailing/be competitive, then party afterwards, this appeals to a significant amount of people. Moths are moths, they are the fastest and most efficent thing out there by a mile outside of Kite-foiling. But a lot of people aren't that interested in spending an extra 25k to go 3-4 knots quicker. Nor are they that interested in spending the same amount of money to go quicker and spend their life not going as fast as someone in a race because of $$. Its development vs one-design. Its tech heads against people who just want to go sailing. They are nothing alike except the fact they all fly above the water.

    WASZP - International Games PERTH

    The WASZP International Slalom was a hit with a couple of rockstars in AC/VOR sailors Tom Johnson and Luke Parkinson stopping by to mix it up! SLALOM Grand Finals TOM JOHNSON & LUKE PARKINSON Interview
  13. What an amazing event! Australian Nationals - International Slalom - International Games drew 67 competitors from 12 nations across the 3 events between 18-28th January! Rory Hunter from GBR took the event on the final run to the finish creating an epic finale to the event and sending the trophy to the northern hemisphere for the first time. Perth absolutely turned it on for this event, it truly is a foiling paradise with winds between 14-25 knots and dead flat water for the entire 10 days of racing. The next major event is the 2019 European Championships at Fraglia Vela Malcesine 16th -20th July and around 100 boats are expected to attend!
