Have just heard from the importer that the Apollo will not be here until 13th Feb. With any luck, by then the weather may have improved a little.

Hi

l??ve just recieved my Apollo here in Denmark. Used it two times, but only very short runs due to hard wind and very low temp.

It is to early to state anything, but there is nearly no volume in the nose, your tacks has to be very, very fast.

I??ll keep you posted, or take a look at http://www.bensens.dk/artikler/Apollo%20er%20landet.htm for some photos (sorry but in danish)

Regards
Bensen

Hi

Try to Google, I found a lot, ex: www.translation-guide.com/free_online_translators.php?from=Danish&to=English - 11k -

The whole homepage consist of more than 350 articles about windsurfing, so you got a job translating.

When I know more about the board I will post my comments here and link to the photos on my hp. I will try to comment the photos in english as well.

Hi Bensen,

I hope your articles will be translated in english, someday... it seems you have posted a lot of very interesting stuff; as I've already said, it's a REAL pity we can't enjoy of all sorts of your good things !!

Yes; Bensens site is a very very good resource for those who understand the language. He's doing a lot of pieces seen from a real-world sailors standpoint; which I believe is very relevant in many situations.

Having followed it since tha start all I can say is I hope he keeps it coming for a long time to come

Hi Bensen,

I checked out your website, and although I can't read Danish, I really liked the different photos that you shot of your new Apollo. It's a real beauty! You presented quite a few interesting shots of the tail features that show much more than anything available on the Starboard website. The detail design features come off as very sculptural in nature. Another thing that was notable is just how far back and on the edge the rear straps are located. Overall, I think you got yourself a real precision hull that marries a lot of trick design engineering and very very good looks. No question in my mind, Starboard's offers some of the best graphic layout in the business. Very clean and sophisticated.
