Hi Luco,

Yes, you are right, I sail at the RDP from El Ombu (probably you know me as PIPO, my surname) Today the wind dropped again :@
If you want you can send me a message (in spanish of course) to

Hi Phill
How is the weaher like now there? I hope that the cold is diminishing
I´m just learning how to use my GPS, the Gartrip software and the excellent Realspeed soft (thanks Mal!) from Mal Wright, a really fast sailor and kind aussie.
As soon as our sailing conditions improves in order to obtain some decent results I will post them to GPS-Speedsurfing.
As regards the fin for the IS87 in general I use bigger fins than other sailors (for slalom, not for speed) I guess that my position (I apply a lot of lateral pressure on the fin) combined with the straps setting (rear position) are the reasons.
I will try a middle strap position with the 32 and then post the result , If possible I will measure speed with both settings (34 cm fin-rear strap position and 32 cm fin-middle strap position) for the 6.7 sail.

Best regards and good winds for all
