Thanks Farlo...

Yes I have tried fully forward with more sensible sail sizes. It feels fine... no problems but no benefit that I can see.To be honest where I sail is a bit gusty and patchy to really understand what happens when I move the mast foot. It never seems to make a huge difference. I am only an intermediate sailor too, which doesn't help I guess...

This time with the 9m sail is the only time I have really noticed a big effect. It really helped equalise the weight distribution into both feet.

As an aside, I have seen on this forum people saying totally opposite things about moving the mast foot forward or back. It would be interesting to try a board with a 1 metre long mast track to take it to extremes, just to see what the hell it is supposed to do...
