Default Apollo, Way forward?

This new Apollo has thrown me. I so so tempted to loose my F159 and grab an Apollo for real light days (I was going to go with a F161) and to get my old Sonic 125 back (for my 9m in 10 knots plus).

In the SB Apollo page, you say planing in 2 knots less wind, I'd say that I can get my F159/11.9m & C3 Bravo 70cm going in 5 to 7 knots (meaning no less than 5k & no more than 7k winds) if I pump like a demon on very flat water, not fast planing, but planing never the less. Based on this, are you saying I should be planing on the Apollo in 3 to 5knots wind, cause if this is right, I'v got to get one asap.

Also, in say 7 or 8 knots wind, will an Apollo be faster or slower than a F159/F161?

Can you confirm the tail width and weight of the Apollo. Will it be priced as the F161 or slightly more?

Is the Apollo intended to be used in formula racing events, IE will see the likes of A. Albeau on one of these in super light venues?

Many thanks
