Question Futura 133 - What sail do you recommend

Hi,
I own a Futura 133 08'. The sailing spot where I go is "DEAD", I pray for wind and nothing.
I am 5'8" (180cm) and 154lbs. A good day of wind is between 10-13kts.
What sail size do you recommend?

Grazie,

Default Go for 9.0 or 9.5 V6 or V8

Hi,

I'm sailing my 133 with a 9.0 v8 2009 in 8 -10 kts with a 51 select fin.
I'm about the same weight.
Works fine.
Otherwise look for a similar cambered sail for bottom-end performance.

Ciao,
a 9,0 will be fine, at least a 8,5. Which sail model are you gonna go for? Perhaps a 2 cam one. It should be a sail,w hich has real power in low end, like Luc mentioned!
What´s your next smaller sailsize you own?

Chris
