A new regatta for young people aged 16 to 20 will be launched in 2015. Athletes will compete in 18-foot catamarans equipped with hydrofoils, which are capable of speeds of up to 35 knots.
The series of races is called Red Bull Foiling Generation and it will be held in several countries: Japan, Great Britain, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, France, and Russia.
On September 25-27 the race will be held in St.Petersburg.
It should be noted that in each country will be held race among the local teams. The winners of each national championship will be able to compete against each other in the international competition at the end of 2016.
As not every country has yachtsmen-juniors who own new type of boat, before every regional stage organizers of the new regatta - Olympic champions Roman Hagar and Hans-Peter Steinacher- will come to the host country and introduce juniors to the project.
