Reaching speed big iSonics vs. formula
Some years ago I had a Carve 145 with a Tushingham Lightning 9.4. When winds were between 12 and 16 knots I would pass any formula sailor on a deep reach just by sheeting in.. It's not like that anymore. Formulas have become very fast even in a lot of wind. I'm thinking of getting some fast gear for those deep reaches in medium winds.
My question is how big the speed difference will be between a formula and a bigger iSonic (122 litres and up)?
Any experiences are welcome..
