Photo: Alex Udin  - One of the most radical F18 designs to date: extreme raked bow, spray rails and super thin daggers, the Wildcat designed by multihull guru Martin Fischer is having its 2nd chance and a great exposure with Sail Innovation team pushing forward with a huge bet on her design.

Although it almost clinched the World Title with Mischa Heemskerk on its 1st Worlds debut, the WCat suffered some minor launch issues, now fully solved as the SI Team has chosen her above several proved and top rated F18s.

At NL F18 Class event in Muiderzand , Olivier Backes and Arnaud Jarlegan riding a Wcat with SI sails had a strong win over current 2x world champ, Coen de Koning and the entire dutch fleet.

Focus on training and development always pays.

Beyond future results, the "Sail Innovation Project" is already a success-
