Default Tiesda - Severne Glide Sail?...

Tiesda:

You mentioned on a post related to the Apollo the Severne Glide sail for early planing for an Apollo.

The only thing I could find on the web was this link on the Severne site:

http://www.severnesails.com/testresults/test26.asp

I sail in New England in the US, and have several Starboard boards (F-Type 148, iSonic 125, Carve 122) but seem to spend most of my time of the F-Type due to lighter winds.

I am considering an Apollo next year for even earlier planing than the F-Type, and maybe a Serenity for when planing is not possible. I currently drive 1.5 hours each way to where I sail, so I don't want to make that drive and get completely skunked (like I did yesterday), I want to make the most out of each session.

What more can you tell us about the Severne Glide sail? What size range do you recommend for use with the Apollo? I imagine it would also be good with the F-Type, wouldn't it? In optimizing for earlier planing, do you sacrifice on top speed?

Also, what sail types do you recommend with the Serenity?

Thanks! Keep up the good work on your bold designs that go "outside of the box" so to speak.
