Default Planing threshold with 7.5 sails

Paulc,

Sorry to respond to this thread with info from a 71 kg sailor, and on a different board,(iS122) but I can tell you that with the iS122 at my weight using a 7.6 MauiSails TR2 I am planing in 10-11 knots.

I have not sailed a Futura, and I am a good 10kg lighter than you, but I would guess that you should be planing in as little as 13 knots if you are able to get any advantage out of pumping or using the small chop/wave to get you going.

My 2cents worth.

Dave
