Futura 122 with 8.5m sail?

I see on this site that the Futura 122 will take a 9m sail. But in practice, on fresh water, will it take an 8.5 V8 comfortably?

The Ultralight straps, when wet, seem to grip on to the latex of my Atan boots they may be OK with conventional neoprene boots. I have realised though that if you don't use the screw covers on the...

Foot straps on Futura, bad design?
