Flying Phantom chosen for Red Bull Foiling Generation
16-20yrs old seems a little low range. If they want youth with experience to Race the FPs, they should have put a limit of say 22-23.
The FP and Nacra are easy to sail up to 8-10knots, above that these boats are not for everyone and you need previous good experience in any racing Class. Even with floating hours behind I've seen live here on the 20s some pretty tough moments for guys with plenty of F18 years on their back.
Above 8knots you need to know what you are doing helming & crewing these foilers.
If you have the 'feeling' and manage to grab the pace, they are a dream to sail also above that limited wind range.
