Severne code red info
Hello everybody!
I would like to know if severne code red 10, had a good light wind performance, in particolar for light weith such a girl.

It is powerful or need much wind to planning? (like warp for example)

What differences between code red 2007 and 2008?
There are two holes for outhaul or only one in 2007?

Thank you for answers.

Nope. Severne is a bad choice.

They are much more interested in fake & crappy graphics by painting their sails, than actually designing performance sails.

Save yourself the embarrassment on the water.

The 2008 models are super stable with a deep powerfull profile in the lower section. For <70kg the 10sqm can be a good light wind choice. Just playing at the first rigging with the spacers to get the correct cam preassure.

For earliest planning with 10 m2 sail still fast stabel, easy rigging and handling on the water, I would considder the Overdrive.
10 m2 Overdrive is close to 11 m2 Code Red reg. early planning.

Unregistered, did you try one of these sails? Which sizes and models? What was the problem? The profile (shape) in the bottom is much deeper and you get into planning quite early.

All the best,

Hi Chris,

who cares about trolls, I have heard they tend to explode when getting in contact with water :-), ask Andy from APM, he knows the whole story.

@ All

We have tried the Code Red 2008 in 11.0 (F161 and F162) and 7.7 (ISonic 122) yesterday, 7 - 15 knots in flat water. Both are incredible with a deep bottom shape and a nice loose leech. The rigging ist perfecly easy. It is necessary to play with the spacers to get the right preasure for a perfect rotation.

On the water, they feel light and even stable in the hand, just Severne Sails.
They both help the boards to get planing early and easy and they accelerate fast to a good speed. The downwindperformance of the 11.0 seems to be very good.

We rigged the 11.0 with the recommendet 550 (34) and even on the older 530 (34) with the tip extension from 2007 (Many thanks to Peter for the help). The bottom shape is deep and the same on both masts but with the tip extension there is more loose leech. We had no chance to test against each other (only one sail) but we will go on and report later.

So with the Code Red 2008 you can expect a realy early planing and powerfull Sail. Light in the hand, easy to rigg and build in an very good workmanship.

Best regards from still cold Germany

Hello LK,

How does the Overdrive handle once the wind picks up to say 12 knots? I guess a Code Red would be better then?

Would the Overdrive 10m be good in 8-12knot conditions you think?


LK 15th April 2008 03:31 PM

What’s your weight/height and skill ?

8-12 knots is sweetspot for a leightweight.

Look at the windrange chart, and comparison to Code Red too.
8-16 knots no problem for medium skil IMO.

Just rigged my new 10,0 Overdrive 08, looks amazing. deep profile low in the sail and nice twist. Hope to test it on the water later this week

thanks LK.

I'm about 75kg/1.77m/intermediate.

Hanging on to a 10m in 16knots of wind sounds kinda hairy to me! Bought I would still be using the 10m Overdrive in those conditions.

So an Overdrive would provide earlier planing as compared to a Code Red of the same size?
And conversely, a Code Red would be easier to handle and more stable in >14knots?

Or is the difference negligable?

Sorry to ask more. Whats your quiver now ?
What board do you want to use the CR/OD on and next sizes/sail type or board down, do you have or want to have. Do you want to race or freeride ?
