Hi Jean-Marc,

thanks a lot for your judgement.

Okay - 1 knot might not be worth it, when thinking of all the stress putting a FW into a car

Hmm: 55cm fin for a 11.0m; may be I've to get a few more cm of fin ?
I should try that Code Red !

Sorry: HS105 ?
Is this the HyperSonic 105 (2003) with a width of about 77cm ?

Sounds good to me
And also par speedwise against a 70 Kg pal with a FW ... Code Red 11.0 m2 sail combo ?

Got that: these 2m more sail will do the job !

Hopefully, I was right with the HyperSonic guess ...
...then - as you have choosen this HS105, you might be better on that, when the wind picks up a bit, as on the iS133 - right ?
