These pictures are floating around of what looks like next year's RS D2. Two daggerboards side by side, and two mast tracks. Good grief!

Talk about thinking outside the box, I can't figure the two mast tracks?

not nearly as complicated as a china tea clipper, but probably more fasta? tandem boarding at its highest level thus far?

Apparently it is a tandem, here are some pictures of Patrice and his brother on the thing.
I was thinking perhaps some sort of windsurf ketch with a giant boom but that's unworkable of course.

Looks like a D2 for 2.

I want one.

I sailed the Starboard Gemini a few times and love that. Got some pretty decent jumps on that one where Jason Voss and I cleared the (very long) fin. I'd be concerned about doing that on this board though. Landing in big Baja swell with that nose could be scary.

Lrrry-

I think the JP superlight will be basically the same as the Bic Formula. I.e., planing about the same time with the 12.5 (if you use a big fin) but also being a pig when not planing.

The RS D2 looks like it would great if you have a million bucks to spend and you know the special techniques for the daggerboard and mast track. A more traditional big raceboard (like the 380) would also give you really good non-planing performance but wouldn't plane as early as the prodigy or the D2. I had a mistral equipe raceboard for a while but I got frustrated with how much wind it required to plane.

Some people say a good 11.0 will get them planing as early as a 12.5, but I think it depends on your weight and how you pump the sail and stuff.

I'm moving to the FL West Coast this summer so I'm going to have to adjust my own quiver accordingly. I think I'm going to get the Exocet Windsup 11'8" so I can have an early planing longboard that will also be good as a SUP.

James, I think you'll be pleased with the Windsup, it's a great all around board.
