Default RE: Starboard Appollo/Formula Windsurfing

George USA39,

I agree, it's a good thing to be designing boards that perform well in lighter winds, but there is a cost.

I only race 6 or so times a year, so I will not likely have a quiver of formula boards. But be sure that at some race, if I am still on my F160, and a fellow competitor shows up on an apollo, I may get my butt kicked by a less skilled sailor. I can live with that, but won't be real happy about it.

On the other hand, I may choose to go the way of the Apollo to maximize my TOW. But if I get into a windy regatta, I may have to sit on the beach.

Life is sooooo hard.
