The youth foiling pathway
Following the evolution of the Olympic Nacra 17 Class, Nacra Sailing introduces the full foiling Nacra 15 FCS multihull, which comes with the same sail plan as the original Nacra 15, except the FCS foiling package being “plug and play”. You can use it as part of a new boat package or as an additional option for existing Nacra 15 owners. The Nacra 15 FCS provides the ultimate sailing experience.
The Nacra 15 FCS- Youth Foiling
Future proof flying
With a target crew weight of approx. 120 kg +/- 10 kg combined, the Nacra 15 FCS (Flight Control System) is ideally suited to both male and female youth sailors allowing them to perform in a wide range of conditions.
This new foiling multihull with two curved dagger boards giving lift and that extra dimension, fun and excitement. Added winglets on the rudders not only stabilise flight but allows the young sailors to sail faster, push harder in safety and control.
With an Infused resin and foam core, hull construction is not only designed to give performance with durability the hulls have been built “future proof”, therefore giving any new owner long term confidence. Nacra 15 FCS, fully foiling now and updated in early 2020, is an exciting option targeted for the Youth Olympics where the Nacra 15 has been selected as one of only 3 sailing classes along with Windsurfing and Kite Boarding. It’s our total confidence that this boat is here to stay at the cutting edge of Youth Sailing for many years ahead.
