Well thats the thing, at 105kg my old F159/11m and a powerfull fin needed 6 to 7 knots to going, but only if I pumped like a demon.

The PWA slalom 42 rules are clear, 7 knot min. The wind most be 7k over the entire course and if it drops below 7k for more than 20 secs, the race is cancelled.

7k used to also be the wind min for PWA Formula course racing, so looks like slalom can match formula!! although its down wind slalom and up/down wind course racing.

There was talk about increasing the new 2009 slalom format to 11 knots.
