The basics we all want to know:

Board length, width, volume

Sail size, mast length, boom length

It seems so simple, but variations or misrepresentations do occur. Finally, Starboard got away from the "virtual volumes" on their boards and got real.

As with boards, different sails that have the same basic measurements do and should vary considerably in performance. We use them in different ways so design/performance specifics will vary based on what the designer was trying to achieve.
