Go 155/175, which one planes earlier?
I need a high volume board for light sea winds (9-14 knots). I want something that starts planning very early and I do not pretend to use it above 14 knots as I will take a smaller board then.
The question is, would a Go 175 suit my light wind planning preferences better than Go 155? would the extra 20 liters be a big difference in that light wind?
My weight is 67kg (147p) and my sailing level is always use harness lines and footstraps, power gybes, water start.
I will use a 7m slalom sail with cambers for that light wind.
Thanks for your opinion

at first look i thought the board was too big and the sail too small for your weight. the sail works best @ about 13 knots as per sail calculator - james douglass, but the board seems too big to me... sail calculator suggests more around 120 liters!! i do not have a GO, but a 160 liter board for similiar winds , but use an 8.5 with 100 kg !! happy planing
