ANDREW SIMPSON & ASSOCIATES

The Andrew Simpson Foundation and GP Watercraft have teamed up to help increase participation in sailing.

GP Watercraft is providing Andrew Simpson Centres with demo foiling boats for use on RYA foiling courses, national foiling initiatives and performance foiling programmes. The partnership will help offer foiling tuition on purpose-built, user-friendly foilers for all ages of sailor.

Skeeta and Nikki

The Skeeta is GP Watercraft’s latest third generation foiling dinghy and is designed by Skeeta Foiling Craft. Marketed as the ultimate all-found foiling dinghy, the Skeeta is said to have excellent handling and stability in displacement mode. The dinghy has a scow hull and freely-pivoting foils and over-rotating rig. Its wings can be removed in less than five seconds.

The Nikki is a new dinghy aimed at younger sailors. With a fully open, modern scow, the Nikki has a simple foiling system which reduces the chance of foil crashing and wings which can be installed or removed in seconds. The two-piece carbon fibre mast has different length mast bates to suit the sail size.
