Flight School in Poole
Flight School takes off in Poole
A Couple of weeks ago we had 6 intrepid Foil Enthusiasts joining us down in Poole, at the The Watersports Academy.
Arriving on the Wednesday evening at the Watersports Academy we wasted no time and got them out for their first flights. After all getting out of the water and up on the foil we debriefed with photos, BBQ and beers and set the sights on the next day.
A morning of looking at kit and getting on the sim set us up well for the next afternoon, when the sea breeze kicked in and we started to move from first flights to some sustained runs off the beach at Sandbanks.
The last day though saw us take to the harbour and the flat waters of Poole gave us our best conditions yet, as everyone went from first flights and sustained flights to starting to look at Gybes and beyond. It was incredible how well the team did in just 6 hours afloat over the 2 and a bit days. Some aching bodies but massive smiles all-round.
Keep an eye out for the next flight schools at the OTC in Weymouth, The Watersports Academy in Poole and Neilson Lesvos
