PRESS RELEASE

The evolution of Nacra 15

Now offering multiple sailor led options for high performance multihull sailing

In 2015, the Nacra 15 was designed from scratch primarily to the World Sailing criteria to become the official Youth Multihull. The fast growing Nacra 15 Class in its C-foil (curved dagger boards) configuration has become an on-going and integral fleet of the Youth Sailing World Championships and uniquely the Youth Olympic Games. The Nacra 15, offering high performance, super competitive racing with speeds up to 20 knots and beyond. A performer in its own right, the Nacra 15 is also a smaller version of the original Olympic Nacra 17 Mixed Multihull, creating a true Olympic pathway.

Boys and girls working hard to represent their home countries can live their dreams at the World Sailing Youth Sailing Championships and Youth Olympic Games. Equipment supplied events organized at the coolest world venues, all possible while Nacra Sailing will supply and support their provided Nacra 15.
Importantly, the Nacra 15 is not only about international racing and making new friends around the world, it’s also about having fun locally whilst just enjoying the thrill of teenage performance sailing. Giving our young athletes a great, healthy and varied foundation in life’s skills.

Now, on top of all this, Nacra Sailing is announcing the all new Nacra 15 FCS (Flight Control System) and the singlehanded Nacra 15 FCS ONE (which will be appealing not only to youth, by the way). First deliveries are scheduled for the beginning of 2019.

Nacra 15 FCS:
Following the evolution of the Olympic Nacra 17 Class, Nacra Sailing introduces the full foiling Nacra 15 FCS multihull. Nacra 15 FCS will be offering the ultimate sailing experience.
Sail plan is the same as the original Nacra 15, with just the FCS foiling package being ‘plug and play’ as part of a new boat package or an additional option for existing Nacra 15 owners.
Nacra Sailing is dedicated to maximize safety in multihull sailing and especially when considering our youth. Our sport is evolving and we are innovating with that development. Nacra Sailing worked in tight partnership with leading design house Morrelli & Melvin on a new design of a L-rudder, including kick-up system. Additionally, sailing garment manufacturers are also making big steps towards ever improving impact protection accessories providing a far safer, more robust ‘high performance’ sailing experience.

Nacra 15 FCS ONE:
Answering the increasing popularity of single-handed sailing, Nacra Sailing is proud to present the Nacra 15 FCS ONE, a full foiling, single-handed version of Nacra 15 FCS. The key difference is the sail configuration including a super efficient deck sweeper main sail, without jib. Single-handed sailing is independent, can be highly competitive, but fundamentally is so much fun. Beautifully illustrated by the growth of international classes, the N15 FCS ONE offers a versatile, robust single-handed performance.
