If Florida had 20+ winds regularly it would be by far the best windsurfing state on the mainland! I believe the east coast gets a little bit more wind as a whole year-round then the Tampa Bay area as ...

Seriously thanks for the great info. Some of it confuses me. I suppose optimal mast rake creates the most power and efficiency somehow. More mast rake moves the sail's center of effort aft on the boar ...

Never really familiarized myself with Point 7. They look like nice sails. Interesting that the ACX is designed so that there is no downhaul tuning. Makes even more of a case for adjustable outhauls.
