You won't get the full early planing benefits from the 8.5 sail, and you won't get planing quite
as early as you would on a bit wider board, but it will certainly work for recreational sailing.
Should be good from around 12 knots up to maybe 15 knots, then look for a smaller sail
around 7.0-7.5 m2.'
