Older sails
I'm getting to grips with my Futura 133. However the sails I use most are 2002/3 V8's. Are the totally out of date? Are More modern sails very different? Would I notice a huge difference?

Hi Andy,

Their is a difference, more easy to control and more comfortable but you can use it without problems and you will enjoy it. Which size?

All the best

I've got 9.5, 8.4, 7.7 V8's then 6.7 Spirit and 5.7 Sabre. My "favourite" is the 8.4. However I would like more modern with fewer sails and masts . Could I get get away with just 3 between 5.7 and 8.5? Should I go for No Cam i.e North Natural?
Thanks for the help

Hi Andy,

If you want to chnage sail ok. The Futura are the board who accept a lot of different sails from no cams to full race sails. Personally this is my best choice.

Futura 133 : NCX Pro 7, 8 & 9 (No cams) / Overdrive 7.5 & 8.5 (3 cams)

All the best
