Advice for sail
 
Hello

I'm planing to buy a futura tufskin 133lt next week and i want to ask which sail is ideal to use it for sailing from 12 to 18 knots (i'm 76kg)

Thanks

Yiannis,

The board is designed to best accomodate a 7.5 - 8.0 sail for an 80kg sailor in winds around 10 -18 knots (my guess). 18 knots will be a handful for most novice and imtermediate sailors on this board.

It depends on your sailing skill and experience. Also the type of sail - No cam freeride or cambered racing sail.

Assuming an average of 15 knots with holes and gusts, a no cam free ride/race sail and your 76kg -

Novice - 5.5
Intermediate - 6.5
Advanced - 7.5

My suggestions (give or take 1/2 meter) - others may offer some additional recommendations.
