Default iSonic 133 biggest sail startinf from 6-10 knts

Hi Kevin,

could you pls give me some advice i want to buy a bigger sail for my is 133,so far i have 8,5m
Its a bit to small. Would you go on a 9,8 or 10m or 10,7m ?
Can you go to 11m ? Cause i want to use the sail if possible also with a formula 162.
What size would you recommend cause i need a more powerfull motor, Vapor Sails.

Thanks a lot and good results Oliver

Oliver,

You can take a big sail on that 133. I would say 11 would be the max but it will work fine. You can can use a big fin on there too. I would say you can use up to 56cm with the 133.

HOpe this helps.

Kevin

Kevin,

What sails are you using on the iSonic 133. Most Pros don't seem to be using bigger sails than 9.0m2 in the PWA?
Thnx

Oliver,

It depends whether you'll be racing under PWA rules or not. If not, I've tried iSonic 133W85 with a Code Red 2 11.0 m2 sail and a Select RS7 55 cm fin without any problems. Pointing upwind/downwind is far from that of a FW of course.

Cheers !

JM

Yeah most people dont use more than 9.0 but the 133 can definitely take a bigger size than that.
