Founder, The Foiling Week

Luca Rizzotti

During the Italian Moth Championships held soon after the 34th America’s Cup finals in 2013 Luca sensed that the time was right to promote the development of foiling, the new way to go sailing.

He was supported and encouraged by a few more visionaries and announced in late December the first ever Foiling Week, an event dedicated to the amazingly fast foiling boats, their sailors, designers and builders. His weekend warrior sailing background was honed first by sailing skiffs in Australia for a few years, and later by the foiling moths since 2007: fast and technological sailing has always been in his strings.

His professional career has seen Luca as industry strategy and business development consultant, but now his vocation for consulting is also turning him towards the world of modern yachting.
