Foiling SuMoth Challenge

The Foiling SuMoth Challenge was created by Foiling Week™ — the first and only global event dedicated to the amazingly fast foiling boats, their sailors, designers, and builders — to support and promote sustainable boat building practices. This unique design competition challenges students to construct competitive Moth class compliant foilers while also considering the environmental, social, and economic impacts of the manufacturing process.

As the Title Sponsor of the Foiling SuMoth Challenge, 11th Hour Racing’s funding supports the sustainability principles and objectives of the SuMoth Challenge.

About the sponsorship

“We are excited to support the foiling sumoth challenge and the innovative concepts and designs that the students will bring to the table. With a focus on low-carbon emission practices, the use of bio-based materials, and strongly encouraging students to upcycle leftover materials, the challenge is poised to produce inspirational concepts for sustainable boat building. We are also thrilled to note that scoring encourages a minimum of one female team member, helping diversify participation in foiling week.”
