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. 11th Hour Racing’s funding will support the sustainability principles and objectives of the SuMoth Challenge.
A selection of initiatives from the Challenge include:
- Provide the opportunity to bring innovative and creative designs to the sport, avoiding “business as usual” practices, which often focus solely on the economic success of products.
- Align with Foiling Week’s key pillars of accessibility, sustainability, and safety.
- Enable participating teams to use a Life Cycle Assessment Tool, enabling them to understand the environmental footprint of their design.
- Diversify attendance of Foiling Week by incentivizing female participation.
