So do they run a Figure 8 course for foiling races?

There is no off season.

That's the new serpentine course. Peter Falk and Alan Arkin doing a dry land version. Lol

Looks like Starboard iFoil is provisional winner.

Interesting that it includes provision for finned sailing (high winds) and variations for courses beyond the usual upwind/downwind.
