Hi Guys,
I would like to know how many liters has a Roberts R Formula from 2005 (100 cm wide) and how good it is about performing in low winds. I need a floater for enjoying more windsurfing days (Vancouver). I am not talking just about planing but want to avoid schlogging. I am 180 lb and I have a NX 9.0
Thanks a lot
Rod

Give Rob at Roberts sailboards a ring and I'm sure he can give you the correct info! Just an idea! Cheers! Mike

Gotta be over 145, but not over 162.
Most guys use up to 10.7 sized sails on them, and some very good Formula guys use 7.8's and actually WIN races.
Upper sail size limit is 12, so it should be floaty enough. Fin makes a huge difference, somewhere between 62-68 for best performance, but for lightest breezes, maybe a low drag 70.
