I have bought the new 117 hoping to be faster than the 127 (75kg) just for Alacati as it's a very salt water spot and,maybe,boards float better even with light air. Am I wrong?
Tested it in such light air vs my buddy's 127/8,6 with a 48 (just to test it and because have no right fin size yet) and I've seen I had (8,6) the same speed in the track as long as there was wind pressure in the sail.Got stucked in dirty air in the lulls.No way to be quick after gybes.
At the moment I'm not sure the 9,2 makes for big gain in those light air days.
Remi,what are in your opinion the right fins sizes for 117 in Alacati?
