TJ,

I was also dreaming of a large Glide sail size for my Serenity until I tried a Code Red 11.0m2 size. Absolute key in 2-7 knots wind range is trim. I mean baggy sail trim and a tighter leech. Match racing on 2 Serenity with either a Glide or a Code Red 11.0 m2 sail have shown that the larger sail is still faster in such very low wind (gliding mode).

For your Apollo, you might be better served with an Overdrive 11m2 sail that is more deeply drafted than a Code Red for planing in ultra light wind conditions. Another option would be the StarBoard Raceboard 9.5 m2 sail: more deeply draft, gruntier and lighter.

Cheers !

JM
