Fair point, in the end any planning craft has a greater minimum so lulls are crucial. The kite might actually benefit from the cleaner winds 25m up, but would anyone want to try when a real lull might mean kite in drink and board sunk ? Makes slogging a formula sound fun. The RS700 skiff has a surprising edge over even the musto. If the A cat was allowed a spi then my money would probably bo on that. Of course if we ignore class rules the formula (say Appollo or FX lightwind) would be allowed an 85cm fin. But you've still got to think the raceboard will be closer to the cat by the end of the lap.
