Re: The current standard of sails

I also own a ks3 (4,6). Sailing a lot in onshore. With the leech a didn‘t experienced what Bouke was saying. But I will look at the leech/feel at the leech next time going clew first. But there is an other reason why this sail is not my first choice . The strong forward pull in gybes. Comming from t...

Re: The current standard of sails

Antoine and Morgan have been testing them a lot in Maui and on the IWT. They look really really good, apparently it’s a cross of the best aspects of the Fly and the Combat.
