Foiling on the Skeeta, the new Centerline-Foiler from Australia

Stickl Sports Camp

"Video tutorials and video analysis will be an integral part of the training program in the foiling courses on Skeeta, Waszp and Ifly15 in 2021. Learning to foil even better and faster is our motto."

Skeeta

The SKEETA is the latest 3rd generation foiling dinghy, designed, built, tested and brought to production readiness by an Australian duo who have been involved in the design of moths - with or without foils - for many years. An exchange of ideas and opinions with QUANTBOATS took place a few years ago. The wishes and opinions of QUANTBOATS flowed into the new boat.

Fun over the whole wind range.

Like all boats from QUANTBOATS, the SKEETA is characterized by good-natured behavior and excellent all-round properties. At the same time, "performance" does not have to be renounced. This includes perfect behaviour when foiling in the lower to medium wind range, "fully foiled" tacks and gybes as well as comfortable, controlled and fast sailing in very light or very strong winds. Then the boat is preferably sailed without foils.

Versatility, comfort and safety

Versatile use is written large with the SKEETA. The scow shape of the hull makes the boat very stable and crashes are rare. If they do happen, they are well cushioned by the ample volume in the bow.

Thanks to the flat hull, you can quickly get back on board after a capsize. This makes it clear that this dinghy is also suitable for beginners, for foiling training, for leisure and fun.

The "flight altitude", for example, is infinitely adjustable - even on the water. A minimum flight altitude enables the novice to quickly celebrate his first successes. If you are surprised by thunderstorm-like winds, you reduce the buoyancy at the center-foil to such an extent that the boat does not take off, but always keeps the bow above water. In this way, you can always return safely to the starting point in conventional sailing mode!

Foils: Simple, low-resistance and crash-proof

The foil system in the SKEETA is the result of over 20 years of development. The design uses a patent from "Glide-Free" at its core. It is characterized by a patented, lever-joint system and a free-floating push rod. The result prevents negative angles of attack (crash prevention) and allows the buoyancy on the foil to be reduced to zero if desired. In addition, the rudder foil eliminates the need for a control to change the angle of attack.
The balance when foiling is still guaranteed, as long as you do not change the factory setting.
Main and rudder foils can be attached or detached from the vertical profiles in seconds using a push-button system.
