After Takapuna Worlds and recent Europeans at Bordeaux, various builders like Exploder, Scheurer, Askell and DNA are constantly looking for ways to achieve more control for the new foiling mode.
This mode is currently a reality in the Class and specially in major events. PJ Dwarshuis , DNA builder, put together this nice video of his own sailing sessions.

Excellent event organized by Cercle Voile Bordeaux. Although some races were held in tricly 4-5knots, it was a good challenge for the foilers to see again how they perform in the lowest wind possible to start a race.
As reported in the week, Glenn just owns this Class, he sailed a Dna to the victory with new developed stepped foils by Mischa Heemskerk plus Exploder rudders.
Three Races were held today in mixed conditions. First race was 4-5knots, top rider and light wind specialist Matthias Dietz won took a bullet from Ashby, who proceed later to standard labor day winning the last two.
The second and third race had good trapeze conditions upwind and pressure for the downwind legs with some going for foiling in the Silver too.
