I think it depends on where you go. We have a few regattas on the US East Coast every year with 20-30 racers and no one is pro level.
Yeah, that is unfortunate. I wish there was a way to keep the guys at the back of the fleet interested. The good thing about racing is even when you're in the back, you can still have fun racing the guys around you, but it is tough to keep coming back if you are getting lapped by the top guys every race.tkaraszewski wrote: I’ve raced boats in national competitions against former America’s Cup sailors and finished 40th out of 50, and it’s just not that fun when nearly the whole fleet is pros that are above your league.
Yup I'll be there!
It uses a Pro Box, which is wider than Tuttle and stiffer as a result. Powerbox is a windsurfing conical box with a single screw.davesails7 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 11, 2019 12:01 pmYup I'll be there!
They couldn't use high modulus carbon for the outside layer, so they made the strut slightly thicker. That actually made it stiffer than his previous foils. He really liked it so he now builds all of his foils that way with a slightly thicker strut. It's definitely a good fast foil
From what I saw, the other difference is it uses power box instead of Tuttle box.
WTF! another box entering the scene?
