Starboard Race Carbon Plus
The Starboard Race Carbon Plus is only meant for race surfers who only want to wind upwind and downwind. The Race Carbon Plus comes with a 115 cm fuselage where the mast continues to the back of the fuselage (this allows the blades to be positioned further forward) and the rear wing is trim pair. This wind foil has a full carbon mast of 95 cm long. The mast is long enough to have enough distance between the bottom of the board and the wings, making the wings less likely to get out of the water. Ideal at sea or inland water with higher waves and for racing.
This high performance foil allows you to wind around 5 to 6 knots. The Starboard Carbon Race plus is compared to the regular carbon race less good to use with more wind (> 14knots).
The large wings and its shape contribute to this and provide more stability and easier ‘take off’ with little wind. The front wing has an area of 800 cm2 and the back wing 255 cm2. This wind foil good up wind very well and can almost be for the wind and is therefore extremely suitable for coarse racing.
With this fuselage you get 6 ‘spacers’ delivered to trim the angle of the rear wing. The recommended angle is -1.5 degrees or -2.0 degrees. Because the front wing is further forward than with the regular fuselage 115 cm, this fuselage gives much more lift.
-2° for >>10 knots (recommended default mode)
-1.5° for high winds 8 to 9 knots
-1° for wind speed around 7 knots
-0.5° for wind speeds around 7 knots
-0° for wind speeds around 6 knots
+1° for wind speeds around 5 knots
