My sailquiver for 2010

For 2010 there will be some minor changes, but since Neilpryde decided to stick to the RS:Slalom MK3 and RS:Racing Evo2 it is not very exciting.

Sailquiver 2010:
  • Neilpryde RS:Slalom MK3 7.0, Rene Mienis has got this sail and it looks sooo nice!! This sail has to bring some comfort, I guess it will not be used for competition. It is mainly for testing in lighter winds and for some more body strenght. Also by sailing less with the 6.2 the chance of breaking the most important sail is reduced.
  • Neilpryde RS:Slalom MK3 6.2, I already got this sail, it will be replaced by a new one. This has to do with some changes in my sponsordeal. The old sail will be sold when the new ones arrive. The RSS MK3 6.2 is one of the most important sails for competition. My goal for 2010 is to trim it more efficient, therefore I will loose bottom-end. But that's OK with a 7.0 on the background.
  • Neilpryde RS:Slalom MK3 5.5, this sail will also be replaced by a new one. I simply try to duplicate the sailsettings of my old 5.5, it is perfect ;)
  • Neilpryde RS:Racing EVO2 4.7, I want to be able to train/test in strong winds. My smallest cambered sail always has been 5.5, I will follow some advice of others and try to build confidence in strong conditions. It depends on costs, but 80% sure I will buy this sail.
