Great observation! Nothing to do with sail size, but great observation! Wink

back to sail size/lightwind advantage, most of the guys (excluding Bert) down here in the Bay seem to be on the performance foil/sail paradigm. When you go to the Gorge it's cool to see guys like Sean Aiken foiling around on a 4.7 on a big foil (Slingshot) when there are no whitecaps on the water (and really no kites either).

Strong wind yesterday afternoon (1-9-1Cool at 3rd Ave. Dmitry 4.2m non-foil early afternoon, me 4.5 and John 5.4 mid-afternoon till sunset, fast orange board dude on Goya sail, unknown size. That was the turnout, oh and only a couple of kiters.

Was somewhat gusty wind, 20-30 mph range. Air was mild, no rain at 3rd, although apparently raining in East Bay. Wind waves a little confused, but not a complete chop fest, so some organized swell here and there.

Not your grand daddy's winter sailing, pretty mild air and water temps. January is the new June apparently.
