Default RE: Q for R??mi: Mast tip extension

Hi PG,

This tip extension help a lot for the light wind sails from 9 to 11.6. It's a combination of softer mast with stiffer battens.

So we use :
a 550 imcs 34 + 30 cm tip extension onthe 11.6
a 530 imcs 32 + 30 cm tip extension on the 11
a 490 imcs 29 + 30 cm tip extension on the 10
a 490 imcs 29 + 30 cm tip extension on the 9

The big benefits of this is that the sail is more soft in the tip, so help a lot in pumping but also you keep plaining a lot more in this configuration. The sail feel lighter and accelerate more and have a beter up wind angle and keep the angle in the lulls. Light wind in waves is a real pleasure, the sails work for you and keep planing longer.

All the best
