The FGO has more reinforcements. You sail this sail with a Severne Blue line RDM mast. This sail is available in 3 sizes; 5.0 m2, 6.0 m2 and 7.0 m2.
The Severne IQfoil Foil Glide Olympic (FGO) is derived from the regular Severne Foil Glide (model 2021/2022) and has been specially developed for the IQfoil youth class. In the FGO there are more reinforcements because of the more intensive use of these sails by the athletes compared to the use by the recreational windfoilen. This sail has the following reinforcements compared to the regular Foil Glide (model 2021);
- protection strips on the lower sail batten
- extra protection (kevlar strips) on the seams at the bottom of the sail
- extra reinforcements on the mast sleeve at the cambers
- and the bottom panel is from X-ply instead of just monofilm.
The FGO’s are therefore fractionally heavier than the regular Severne Foilglides. The difference is about 200 to 250 grams. As with the regular Foil Glide, weight saving, handling and stability are the most important aspects that have been taken into account in the development of this sail. For the IQfoil youth class you sail this sail with a Severne IQfoil blue line RDM mast. The Severne FGO is available in 3 sizes; 5.0 m2, 6.0 m2 and 7.0 m2.
For those who want to develop further, the purchase of a specific wind foil sail is very desirable. This sail ensures that with even less wind you can already rise and much more stable (read more natural posture) you can wind foil. This sail has the same weight as a light wavesail! This sail is meant to be free-racing or racing. This sail is also ideal for kids who want to develop further.
Lightweight & soft
Everything has been done to keep this sail as light as possible. The weight is similar to that of a wave sail! The sail has relatively little downhaul tension which makes the sail feel very soft. This makes it very easy to get into plané. The sail rotates (when using an RDM mast) almost as easily as a sail without cambers.
Stable & short boom
By keeping the boom as short as possible with the 3-cams, a very stable sail is created. The sail has virtually no loose leach, which provides a lot of power in little wind. The cambers ensure that even with little wind the profile remains beautiful in the sail.
Choose the right size, try it out first
You have to have dangers with this sail to realize how little sail you actually need to wind up. With this sail you can easily take 2.0 m2 smaller than you are used to with normal windsurfing. We have all 3 sizes available to test. Our advice is to try out the various sizes first, so that you can decide which size suits you best. Send us an email and we will schedule a test.
