A lot of people really like the challenge of sailing formula in +20 knots. I do. When you jump off your 10.0m in 30 knots onto your 6.7m/85l slalom board it feels like a toy.. sooo easy to gybe
@ Aco - there is no faster sailing boat around a W/L course than an FW board. I've seen top FW sailors beat an 18ft skiff around a course (albeit it was VERY close) and there isn't much faster boats than an 18ft'er in a breeze.
