Ultrasonic 147 and Kombat 122

I currently sail 2008 Futura 145 for light winds, Kombat 122 in medium winds and Kombat 107 in higher winds.

I have sails from 4.7 up to 9.5 (which I use on old Bic free formula)

I was considering trading in my Futura and Bic and buying a Ultrasonic 147 instead.

Do you thik think that would be a sensible combination or do you think the jump between Ultrasonic and Kombat too large.

Biggest sail I use on Kombat is 7.5, beyond that I would need to change to Ultrasonic with 7.5 and upwards.

I am 105KG and advanced intermediate sailor sailing in coastal waters.

Hi Jk

Look like ok for UltraSonic 147 and Kode 122, your 9.5 will be perfect on the US 147 and 7.5 perfect on the Kode.
You can even put a bigger sail on the US 147 if you want explore very light winds.

All the best

Thanks Remi, however I am quoted a two month waiting time on US 147 in UK, do you know any quicker way to get one.

All the best
