Hi All,

Just for information : Formula with 70 fin and 10m˛ can plane at 6 knots easy for a rider of 55 kgs. Bigger sail will give no benefits at all. To heavy and not efficient, thanks

Morane is the good exemple and finish 3 at the last Formula Windsurfing World Championship in senior.

Hope this help

All the best

Interesting, Remi.

It makes me wonder.

I'm 86kg and I know that I can plane with my F161/12m2 starting from 6 knots, with strong pumping to get going.
Now, am I technically able to plane as fast as a 55kg raider in these wind conditions ?
If not, starting from which wind force, am I techically capable to compete with such a light rider ?

Thanks for this clarification, the thought of a 12m2 rig is quite overwhelming... Any sails you recommend? I was thinking the Severne Reflex Overdrive 9.7m could be good... I don't think the 0.3m2 missing would make much of a difference. Which sails do you prefer for formula/lightwind? Thanks again.

Hi Agrelon,

The new Reflex is more powerfull than the Code Red 9,8 that Morane use last year, so that will be perfect with a better glide and cam rotation.

Hi BelSkorpio,

I am 88kgs and Morane can plane before me, but as soon I get planning I am faster due to my weight. Hope this help.

All the best
