Topic: testing TR sails in all conditions

maybe you should get Art to test TR-9's in conditions like these :-)

Re: testing TR sails in all conditions

how much wind?.... 47 knots?

Re: testing TR sails in all conditions

the readings were from his GPS - so, 47 knots max speed

Dean says he uses a 5.0 and asked MS for specialized sails under 5.0
In the comments on vimeo he writes that he gets 3 times the wind speed !!!
so, 47 knots means light wind day ??

Re: testing TR sails in all conditions

we have a 4.7 TR and there are still some older ones available. that could help him out.

Re: testing TR sails in all conditions

okay - have sent Dean the info...
Jeff Brown goes on the same lake
he went 47 knots in 15 knot winds with sail JBD
apparently Jeff Brown Design was a sail back in the day
and GREAT on ice + long lasting
was before my windsurf time in any case
i hope to go to Lake Massabesic - check it out
AND try my ice sled - will be too fast for my MS-2
unfortunately my smallest sail is a HSM 6.3 :-(
cannot afford new sails any more ...

check the music , the lake etc in this video !!!
