The local ‘Peler’ Garda breeze filled in early in the morning on the final day of Foiling Week to bring the class racing to a fitting finale. The northerly breeze lasted until mid day before fading, the southerly ‘Ora’ never able to materialise.

The Moths were the largest class racing with 42 boats from 13 nations, all getting valuable practice time before the Moth Worlds to be held on the same waters in two weeks time. Rob Greenhalgh (GBR) is no stranger to the Lake having won the regatta last year. Greenhalgh fired off an impressive 8 bullets in 9 races to comfortably win the regatta. Improving steadily in second was Scott Babbage from Australia who has had quite a lot of time out of the boat working with the SoftBank Japan America’s Cup America's Cup #AmericasCup team. Babbage finished just two points ahead of Ben Paton (GBR).

The Flying Phantoms have become regulars at Foiling Week Garda. The overall regatta became a close contest between the two Realstone boats from Switzerland. Throughout the 12 races held, the two training partners enjoyed regular place changes but Bruno Barbarin & Cedric Schmitt (SUI) came out on top with a string of wins. Robin Maeder & Janik Roempp (SUI) were second overall and the German team of Sven Klingenberg & Stefan Rumnf GER who are still learning in the class, in third.

The S9 class has continued to develop the design and have become a popular foiler at Foiling Week. Seven boats sailed 9 races and the top three boats were all Italian. Vincenzo Sorrentino won the regatta with 7 wins. Second overall was Elia Mazzucchi and third Michele Petrucci both with consistent results.

The Kite boards who always provide a real spectacle at Foiling Week, raced just south of Malcesine on a separate race course. The top three kites on the podium were also Italian riders. Mirco Casale scored the most wins, followed by Enrico Tonon and Valeria Venturi.
