Default RE: Slalom versus long-distance

... but on the other hand in long distance races one might have to face wind changes of any kind.
Well here is my guess, agreeing with barks' and making it just a little bit articulated. More board volume could help with the many jibes (slalom) while probably wind changes (long distance) are better dealt with keeping a smaller board for speed and using large sails (range).
