Default two slalom race legs

hello, i'm pretty new to the forum but pretty old watching at it, as am switching to an isonic 2008 from a carve 111 i need some help in choosing which one.
I weight 70 kilos and we are in a club and only race between 3 sailors each time eliminating 2nd and 3rd and so on, doing beach start until a buoy and back to the beach, total one mile going and one mile returning and sailing 90/100 degress to the wind. The wind allways between cambered 6.2 and 7.2 but sometimes with some holes as a lake, the thing is I need a board that start planing asap and reaches full speed asap too. The water is mirror flat like and i don't have technical issues so any volume will fit the need.
I think the 111 could do the work because of the beach starting, wind holes and jibing slows but the 101 makes me think on top end speed in that long run. Is the 2008 isonic 101 wider at the tail?
Could somebody help in what to choose?
Thanks a lot.
