View Full Version : Isonic 101?

24th January 2009, 04:19 PM
i'm looking for the Isonic 101 with 97 litres volume. I like the shape, the design and the performance. I don't like wide boards as the Isonic 111 and 122 with a width more than 65 cm. Can I use the Isonic 101 with my 6.6 North S-Type, a weight bedween 78 and 80 kg at irregular winds between 10 and 20 knots? (Lago of Garda) Carry the Isonic 101 my weight also by less winds?
Best regards

Or is the Isonic 111 (Model 2008) the better choise? (I like the shape more than the Model 2009.)

I use my IS101 with 7,3 race sail and I need 15-16knots to get going but shorter lulls are no problem but longer lulls will drop me of planing. I am 85kg by the way. 7,3 is very good size i think 6,6 is also good. It handle chop very well so you can sail it in 25knots wind aswell.
Would be interesting to know if it works well with 8,5-9m sails, I doubt it will tough max recomended is 8,5. Does not seem like many are using it with sails bigger than 8m.

Thank you very much. I fear I will sinking in lower winds than 10 knots with a IS101 and 80kg. I would like to use the ISONIC at Lake Garda (Italy) in irregular winds between 10 and 20 knots. I use sails between 4.5 and 6.6. I donīt like bigger sails than 7. I think the IS111 (108 Litres) is the better choise for 80kg with 6.6. Perhaps, I buy a 8.0 race sail for less winds till 15 knots. Over 20 knots I can use my JP with 5.4 or 6.2.

I'm afraid you can't sail irregular 10-12 knots on a lake with a 7. You'll need at least iS111+8.0 or 8.5.
Btw, you say you use sails 4.5-6.6, that seems way too small for 10-20 knots lake sailing?

PS I use iS122 with 7.3 and 9.0 sails for the same conditions, I'm 86kg.

You will sink with the 101 and 80Kg of weight! I personally float, not too comfortably, with my CA 98L ... but I am 70Kg:
