2020 Phantom Race 377L
Compared to the previous generation, the 377L improves its light wind performance: thicker to help to get on the rails quicker, avoid diving and improve gilde over waves. The new slanted mast track is placed 2 cm further back while the daggerboard is 2cm further forward, making the board more sensitive in light winds and getting it on rail quicker. To enhance early planing, the bat wings are 3cm wider at 60cm before narrowing in the tail for more top end speed and a better feel of the fin.
The Phantom 377L focuses on light wind performance. It is thicker, with new mast track and daggerboard positions and a new outline. Recommended for sailors over 80 kg

Bat wing design
At low speeds, the Bat-Wings sink below the water to allow the water to flow around the narrow, streamlined section of the tail. The board glides like a narrow missile with a smooth water exit off the tail.
In slightly more wind, the board starts to lift on to its rail, so one wing lifts out of the water while the leeward wing continues to travel below the water surface.
As the board increases speed in more wind, the wide planing surface starts to generate lift, allowing the board to transition smoothly into planing mode. Because the wings are wide, the planing surface is wide. So the transition into planing happens earlier than other narrow-tail raceboards. In full planing mode, the board planes high above the water, rides fast and free, allows for deeper fins to be used and for deeper upwind/downwind angles to be reached.
Slightly lifted rockerline for a smooth ride over the chop
Slanted adjustable mast track: the front section is raised, helping the board to roll up onto its rail quickly in light winds. The back section is sunk below deck level to improve control in full-planing mode
Multiple foot straps positions for the back foot combined with the Bat-Wings allow for easy reaching
