Hi Roger thanks for quick reply,

I took a look at that spot and took some measures and at where I enter sea
distance is ~ 1200 meters, but if I go more south distance between shores in 6 km.
Bay has wide V shape so i.e. for only 4 km more south I get to 6 km distance.

Yes tipical wind is arround 12-15 knots, or we have strong NE wind BURA ~25-45 knots
but for that I have smaller board.

I have allready 9.0m2 Simmer 3XC (3 cam sail freerace) and i plane to buy bigger for
that board. For example this summer I tried Futura133+3XC 9.0m2+Drake fin 48 (standard
fin for board) and I could not plane. It was missing just I little to get plane, some guys with F-Types and formula boards were "flying" arround me, but not me. Now I buy 52 cm fin but I did not still try this combination. .

Can you suggest some sail model from Neil Pride / Gaastra / Simmer / Point 7
which will be good for me. This brand we have in Croatia.

Also can you explain me why "more drafty" free race sail can produce more "force"
than i.e. NP RS4 sail, with less squre meters? I realy do not understand it, let say in theoreticaly why?!
