Hi Guys,

is it possible to use a Glide 7,5 with a Futura 111 from 2008? Thanks for your help and

best regards,
Michael

Hi Michael,
Yes, the 7.5 m2 Severne Glide would work very well on the Futura 111.
Maybe not for extremely overpowered conditions (> 16 knots perhaps) but
I've used the Glide on the Apollo, Serenity, and several 100 liter + Futuras,
Carves, etc.
The Glide will get you planing about the earliest possible with the Futura 111.
The Glide has a very powerful draft, and is very light in weight making it a great
sail for early planing.
It does not have much "top twist" so it's not so good if you sail it overpowered.
If you have a 6.5 m2 rig to take care of 16 knots and up, you will be very happy with the
Glide!

Hi Roger,

thank you very much for your answer. I' still have a Glide and now I made my decision to buy the Futura 111.

All the best and have a nice weekend,
Michael
