Default RE: Uphauling a 10 m sail on shortboard (iSonic 133)

Fred, I can see why some sailors love the F-Type: easy to sail, smooth and forgiving compared with a Formula; but its (in)ability upwind, at least with the stock fin and in slightly underpowered conditions, is surprising. I am not comparing its upwind performance with a Formula, but with small iSonics, that are designed primarily to fly off the wind, but not to track upwind (even though they are very good at the latter).
