ICOMIA, International Council of Marine Industry Associations, is delighted to welcome The Foiling Organization as a Sustaining Member.

The Foiling Organization is a non-profit professional association for the industry of foiling. It covers all aspects of the industry including; boat yards, component manufacturers, designers, universities, research facilities, pro-sailors, yacht clubs, events and institutions. Their main goal is to promote foiling to everyone but in particular for cruising, racing and commercial shipping. The aim is to create a network approach that will serve to enhance the value of foiling as well as secure better funding for the growth of the industry and to provide a source for education.

Foiling is set for huge growth in the coming years and continues to be a hot industry topic. In November 2023 METSTRADE and The Foiling Organization launched the Foiling Technology Pavilion, the first exhibition space dedicated entirely to foiling.  As well as this The Foiling Organization has set up headquarters in Genoa, where they aim to create a global foiling technological cluster, attracting companies and experts inspired by the same enthusiasm. 

Luca Rizzotti, Founder, The Foiling Organization said:

“We are delighted to join ICOMIA as a sustaining member. The Foiling Organization is growing so fast around the world and we felt that being part of an international group who are dedicated to the recreational boating industry would help us on our journey to bring foiling into the mainstream. Our move to Genoa offers us excellent perspectives but, especially in the beginning, we will need significant support from forward-thinking entities willing to invest with us in future technology.”

Joe Lynch, CEO of ICOMIA said:

“We are happy to welcome The Foiling Organization into ICOMIA and look forward to building a strong partnership with Luca and everyone involved in this exciting and innovative section of our market. The potential for foiling to transform the customer experience afloat, to open up new exciting opportunities and to positively impact the sustainability of our industry is huge. We look forward to helping the entire global community of boaters to connect with Luca and this great organisation.”
