Tom Phipps

Tom Phipps, is no stranger to the Windsport philosophy “Only the best will do”.  When Tom  is not campaigning in his Olympic catamaran, he is a key player of the Windsport team.  He has been the driving influence in developing the Windsport Multihull Foiling Academy

Tom understands the challenge of mastering the basics, acquiring new techniques, coaching important skills, striving for results and managing success and disappointment especially in the dynamic foiling medium.

Having grown up in catamaran sailing, and being lucky enough to progress as the sport has changed in so many ways, it was only natural for Tom to end up in the Foiling multihull world.  Following a 4 year Olympic cycle focussed on the 2016 Olympics, Tom’s first involvement with foiling was competing with in the Flying Phantom Elite race series, where he took first place at the prestigious Lake Garda Foiling week event. Following a summer of extensive Foiling A-Class training, Tom moved into the redesigned flying Nacra 17, where he was a consistent face at the front of the very advanced Olympic fleet.  Now Tom is looking to involve more people into this incredible sport, working with the Windsport Multi-hull Foiling academy the two can provide the perfect support and environment to get anyone up and flying on the water.
