RE: Freeriding the GO 170 with formula sail
I have proved that old GO friendship (~175 ltrs) work very well with my 10m overdrive rig. so easy.
I disagree that old race sails (nitros, etc.) with their 4/5 cambers and moderate sleeve will be easy... it is only easy to find cheap at second hand marked.... no more.
Freerace sails, with 2/3 cambers and "snap-on" rigging technique would be the best you can find, but if you arent plenty of money, look for a old Nitro, NP RS1/2/3 etc.
Modern freerace sails are almost as good as pure-race sails, more durable, easy rig, etc.
Maybe jump from 7,5 to 10m is more than you "recreational" skill can accept. Try first with a 8,5m-9m freerace sail (V6, V8, Overdrive, Element, Swift, GTX...)
Maybe you can do it ussing the same mast / boom.
But if you find a cheap used 10m rig, go for it, try it and the decide which kind/size of rig you need.
