Default Overdrive

Hi,
I have bought the new Overdrive R2 11.0 that will arrive me very soon. I have my R1 overdrive 11.0 and I was using my 520cm mast plus 44cm chinook base.
now looks it needs 568cm, that means 48cm chinook base that is the maximum lenght of chinook bases.

Have anyone tried this? is it ok? also for hi wind setup?

Marc

I think Remi should know this.

I still think they have manufactured the sail to be used with 520cm as usually, most biggest FE masts are 520cm.

Hi,

There are a 540cm Severne Blueline mast compatible for both 10m and 11m. The same curve, the same IMCS.

Overdrive need much less downhaul tension than pure race sails, but you will need a strong base if you plan to use a 520cm mast.

Cheers,

Paco

Hi

Their is another solution : put a tip extension, your sail will be softer and give you great results in light winds.

All the best

And what about strong winds? Will it worked ok? Have someone tried to rig it with a 48cm base? how does it looks?
