Default RE: FE160 + stock fin -> Spin-out

Hello Remi,

Thanks for your fantastic help. Your answers can help us too much.

We will put "hands on" trying your settings.

About Overdrive:

We have a mix of models: 2006 10m, 2007 11m, and some 11m R2s.

Some (80kg and so skilled) guys feel 11m r2 too powerfull with 15-16 knots. He downhaul a bit more than specs for sail depower.

11m R2 sailors are using 1 spacer on 3 cams, even 2 on the middle one, to strech sleeve and move profile forward.

Personally i use a 2006 10m Overdrive without spacers, because cambers dont rotate as well i desire and spacers (i think) dont help with cambers rotation problems.

I allways downhaul 1-2 cms more than specs.

One question more: THE BOOM!

┬┐What about the boom?

Personally i think my FE160_Overdrive+alloyboom is like a Sport_Car+bike_tires... but some of us are happy with Nautix boom.

What boom you suggest for big (+80kg) guy with 11m sail?

Well, maybe im asking too much things at time...



PD: We dont know is some of us want/can/may/shall go to FE Worlds... but take for sure most of us dream to win a lotto prize... and fly to sunny Maritica... ;-)
