Challenger Sails and Point-7 split up. The collaboration which has started in 2010, to produce faster and higher quality-orientated, has now come to an end. Challenger Sails has been designing sails for incredible 35 years and is now looking for new challenges. We had a chat with Claudio Badiali, the sail designer from Senigallia (Italy), who already has a new project on his radar, the soft wing sail construction.
Andrea Cucchi (Point-7): “We thank Claudio and we wish him good luck for his soft wing project. We are now working with our new design team on the new model ‘FW1’ formula racing sails, which very soon we will be presented. All the Black Team is slowly arriving to Tenerife and we will start our winter training by beginning of December. Looks like an exciting windsurfing winter is ahead of us.”
