Hi,
I currently have a NP slalom MK-II 10.0. No matter how much downhaul force I apply to the sail the leech does not twist enough.
I think that this is because it is intended for light wind sailing (its a slalom sail and its the biggest of the series NP produced).
Anyway the sail feels heavy and difficult to control when the wind picks up. On the other hand 10.0m2 formula sails are intented for medium to high wind racing.
I have a North Sails mast and I am thinking of buying a North WARP 10.0 sail which is clearly intended for formula (high winds). The WARP 9.9 is the largest of the slalom sails (just like the NP 10.0 that I have).Unfortunately I cannot find a 10.0 for sail but there are lots of 9.9!!!!
The question then is: Which is best for high wind formula sailing?Anyone with experience of these sails? Will it be tough to control the 9.9 in high winds?
Cheers
