You wonder how it is foiling in Sandefjord? Look at this After Movie!
Destined to become ‘the city of foils’, Sandefjord should be a bucket list venue for foilers everywhere but until now, has been largely undiscovered by sailors that love to fly. The WASZP class is pulling back the curtain and showing this untapped sailing paradise to the world by awarding Sandefjord an upgrade from the European Games in 2024 to a combined WASZP International Games and European Games!

WASZP Games 2024 event partner

In collaboration with the WASZP Games, ROCKWOOL will deliver a range of activation that will help to take the event to the next level for both competitors and wider stakeholders, as sailors from 18 countries head to the island of Seilerholmen to enjoy five days of world-class racing, social events and learning workshops.
