One of the delights of raceboard is that you can race in light winds.
In the UK racing inland reduces formula sailors to spectators at the majority of events. At coastal events, the raceboards generally do more races than formula class.
Cheap second hand kit is available for both classes, though raceboards are getting harder to find as so few have been made in recent years.
It does appear that the industry is begginning to support raceboard again after a ten year period when they put all their marketing resources behind formula.
