Thumbs up FORMULA EXPERIENCE (a question to REMY)

This is my first season with FE so I'm using the overdrive 2009 10mts (I think next year I will go to 11 meters), my weight is 85kgs and 1,84 high, 53 years in good physical shape.

Please excuse the excessive amount of questions but I'm anxious to sail better my new FE.

Mast foot: best position in light wind (how many cms. behind center).

>15knots, freshwater chopy condition (waves against you. 50/80cms high), the upwind sailing for me, became very hard and jumpy. Questions:

-How far in front of the center of track go mast base in hard wind/chop sailing in the FE.
-In this case is good to sail at maximun outhaul?
-Is good in the Overdrive 10, use 2 cms more in downhaul base?
-Tilting the board to leeward help in this case or maybe you increase the risk to lift off?
-In any point of sails is good to tilt the board to leeward (heavy or light wind)?

Can you tell me any aditional tip to sail in rough conditions?

Thanks you very much
Best regards

I'm so happy to know that I'm not the only old guy racing FE, welcome to the class.
BTW I'm 46.

Hi Rem_cl,

At 85 kg if you are in good physical condition the 11m² will be for sure better than the 10 in lighter winds.

You may use the R19 and the mast track 1 or 2 cm behind the middle in light winds conditions.

I never go over the middle, but this also depend about how much your legs are strong, basicly better to keep as far in the back in any condition to go fast. Use also to reduce the physical demand the R13 at this time.

I have no chance this year to test the Overdirve 10 and 11m², so can't answer.

My boom is eyes level and my harness line are long that I can trim.

Foostraps are all in the back for the back one and all the way in front for better down wind hability, but need quite experience to use this set up. Most of the riders use all of them in the back.

Hope this help.

Have fun in the FE Class and hope to see you in Brazil 2010 for the World.

All the best

Thanks Remi, the next sailing sesion I will put in practice your setup.
I keep only one doubt:

<<In any point of sails is good to tilt the board to leeward (heavy or light wind)?>>

Best regards.
