I expected a lot of funny reactions on my last post.

I've seen Ben VDS lots of time on my favourite spot in Holland.
Believe me, he's always on sails 1 - 2 m2 bigger as I am.
Typically when I'm on my 6.7, he's on his 8.6.
That's why he's a pro and I'm an amateur

On the Isonics I only use race sails.
And I agree with Ken, it's nice to have a big choice although life could be simpler.
To make this complicated choice much easier, I use an anemometer.
Winds change.Tell me something new. That's why I postpone the sail choice as long as possible. Logical, not ?

About throwing money at the sport.
At the moment I don't have any board nor sail that I've bought new. All 2nd hand.
But it's still expensive enough.
