I seems the the newer Pryde sails are closely related to the RS-6. The reality is that most RS-6's have passed their used by dates and have naturally fallen apart. Obviously there are a few still being raced on though for the lucky few who still have them!
Re: Boards. I believe this spot in Brazil is the regular racing venue for BRA-50 etc and they know it like the back of their hands. Clearly they have a good set up with the 160/161 and don't feel the need to change.
This is any enormous positive for the sport huh.....
None of the 2012-13 boards are eligible for this event so difficult to judge the new equipment yet.
Looked like a great event in Brazil though. Really high standard!
