Default RE: ISonic fine tuning (For Ian and Kevin)


Glad to hear you enjoyed it. It's amazing how easy to sail the 87 is.

I find it interesting that you found the 32 fin too small and I found it slightly too big. Probably down to the strong tide you faced. I'm only a couple of kgs lighter.

Now you have a GPS I hope to see your tracks on http://www.gps-speedsurfing.com/gps.asp. It's really easy to post on there.

Hi Luco,

Yes, you are right, I sail at the RDP from El Ombu (probably you know me as PIPO, my surname) Today the wind dropped again :@
If you want you can send me a message (in spanish of course) to cduperron@fibertel.com.ar

Hi Phill
How is the weaher like now there? I hope that the cold is diminishing
I´m just learning how to use my GPS, the Gartrip software and the excellent Realspeed soft (thanks Mal!) from Mal Wright, a really fast sailor and kind aussie.
As soon as our sailing conditions improves in order to obtain some decent results I will post them to GPS-Speedsurfing.
As regards the fin for the IS87 in general I use bigger fins than other sailors (for slalom, not for speed) I guess that my position (I apply a lot of lateral pressure on the fin) combined with the straps setting (rear position) are the reasons.
I will try a middle strap position with the 32 and then post the result , If possible I will measure speed with both settings (34 cm fin-rear strap position and 32 cm fin-middle strap position) for the 6.7 sail.

Best regards and good winds for all
