I have a jp supersport 127 pro and a ncx 8.0.
my weight 90 kg.

often there is beufort 3 and 4 here

Is there much to gain by buying other equipement in order to not only plane earlier but have som real FUN in lighter winds?

A friend had a jp superlight wind and tha really worked in light wind with a 7.8 rs slalom neil pryde(he is only 70 kg)

And then- What board and severne sail? I dont want formula i think

I had a glide 8.5 2010 but didnt like it because of the back handedness in the gusts

Htanks a lot

How do you feel about the largest Futura with an 8,5 or 9,0 freerace sail?

Must be great with 9 knots or more, I think.

I did sail a futura 141 2009 model with a tushingham thunderbird 8.0 at Moonbeach this spring. That was a good early planning good jibing combination. Could easily have taken a bigger sail
