Default Question for Remi concerning the Apollo

Hi Remi,

I have the Starboard Apollo (2nd generation, 235 cm long). Which Deboichet fin would you recommend for super early planing with a Severne Glide 8.5m? My weight is 90 kg.

Thanking you in advance,

TJ

Hi Unregistered,

In my opinion you should change to a bigger sail for early planning, like 12mē with a Deboichet R13 75 Soft Rake + 8cm

All the best

Tj,

I agree with Remi - a fin will make a little difference, but the sail is the real issue.

A 90 kg sailor can easily handle a 10, 11 or 12 meter sail. However, a new sail will require a new boom and mast, all pretty expensive. If you are really interested in early planing (you have an Apollo), then get a sail to complete the package.

I weight 79 kg, am 64 years old and have a sails up to 11.0 for my formula board (8-14 knots is the range for me on this sail). I drop to a 9.2 for 13-18 knots.

If you were to go for only one sail now, you could buy an 11.0 and if you wanted to, you could add a 12.0 later which would fit on the same mast and boom.

Never buy a Ferrari with a 4 cylinder engine.
