Introducing the TF35 Trophy


Racing for the first time on Lake Geneva the seven-strong TF35 fleet is the next generation in high performance foiling. 

After an intense design and development process throughout 2018-19, the innovative TF35's journey slowed in 2020, as events across the world were postponed due the COVID-19 pandemic. The additional time has been put to good use as the confirmed seven crews got to grips with their new racing machines.

TF35 boat zero - Alinghi's first sail


"The feeling, it's like skiing in powder, there is nothing but the vibration of the foils," Arnaud Psarofaghis, Alinghi.

9 knots of wind - 17 knots of boat speed foiling upwind, 23 knots downwind


Our brief: design a boat that would fly in very light wind, to have electronic stability and that all the boats are exactly the same.

First flight boat zero


The first day of sailing went far beyond expectation as in only nine knots of breeze the TF35 was comfortably foiling reaching 17 knots boat speed upwind and 23 knots downwind with a very stable flight.

TF35 the final preparation


Here we go - the final preparation of boat zero before tomorrow's splash.
