SANTI LANGE

Santi Lange is a sailor and naval architect from Argentina. Born in 1961, he has won three Olympic medals, two bronze and then one gold at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro games, after winning his battle against cancer. The Argentinian Olympic team in Rio was made up of two of his four children, Jago and Klaus, who are also part of the 69F Academy project.

Sailing will have a great future if it develops in one specific direction, that of more fun, more technique, more speed, less rules and more immediacy. Sailing clubs should be open, more inclusive and respectful of the environment. These factors are what the 69F embodies: the monohull foil is the key to the future of world sailing and my aim is to popularise it as much as possible”.

A FULL-IMMERSION EXPERIENCE INTO THE FUTURE OF SAILING

Devised by one of the most famous foilers in the world, the Olympic medallist Santi Lange, the Academy is a unique, unmissable opportunity for amateurs to learn foiling techniques from scratch.

Advanced and tailor-made courses are also available for expert sailors, kite foilers or moth racers, to focus on training ahead of the regattas.

There are various formulas one can choose from, which are either linked to the Race or Revolution events or held in other times of the year. Packages can be bought for one day, three days or for a weekly “camp” and they include lessons at sea, classes on theory and techniques held in line with Santi Lange’s programme and taught by professional sailors and expert shore teams.

The Academy is located in Malcesine, on Lake Garda and is open throughout the year, except during the Races and Revolution Cup when the foiling Academy reaches the Clubs hosting the regattas one week before the races.

On land, the organisers Team 69F offers high quality hospitality and a series of ancillary events to complete your full-immersion experience into the future of sailing.
