Go 86 or a 81 with those sail sizes. My 86 works well down to a 4.5-4.7m up to a 5.5. I'm 86kgs

Its already been said but Id go with the Kode 86 for your sail range.... I am 86kgs and have used mine down to 4.2... I used to own a 94 and wouldn't want to be on sails that small....

I understand everybody says go smaller for this winds but i feel that whiout enoght floating when the wind came down a little im sinking very easily
Then back to plane is tiring
Also out of a jibe if im not planning (90%) go againg to plane half sinked is again hard
So perhaps extra floating will be a good way to go?
Dont you think whith smaller fin i can have enught control?
Thanks

it depends how you can start.
If you have immediately the wind, go for the 86. Else go for the 94.
It will also handle these sails perfectly. Different rules for heavier weights.
