    Our dedicated foil free-race sail. Combining the ultimate foiling technology of our Flight EVO range with the ease of use of the V8, V8 Flight is the ultimate high performance free-race foil sail. Super-fast and stable, 4 sizes from 5m to 8m will give you the ability to outfly your friends in anything from 6-25 knots. A favourite sail in personal quivers and windsurf centres across the world.

    Slalom Sail Speed and Pure Foil Racing Without The Technicalities

    Directly derived from our RS:Flight program, V8 Flight offers almost as much speed, power and upwind / downwind abilities as our pure racing foil sail but with a narrower luff sleeve and only 2 cams.

    Narrow Double Luff Construction
    A much narrower luff sleeve than the RS:Flight allows for quicker and easier rigging and minimizes the luff sleeve’s ability to fill with water when submerged after a fall.
    Easier Rigging Than a Pure Slalom Sail

    With only 2 cams and slightly less overall downhaul tension, V8 Flight rigs much quicker than a fully cambered foil slalom sail.
    Gybing and Rotation

    The advantage of a twin cam sail in the gybes is that the rotation is smoother and easier. This is especially helpful for foiling where every slight movement of the sail can affect the flight of the foil through the gybes.
    Foil Specific

    Designed purely for foil free-race, V8 Flight takes advantages of design features which are not possible to use on fin sails due to the need for control and wind release.

    High Aspect Design
    The outline of V8 Flight is directly derived from the high-aspect design of the RS:Flight. This allows the sail to take maximum advantage of every gust and promotes maximum speed and upwind/downwind performance.

    Tight Leech Design
    Since control over chop is not an issue when up on the foil, V8 Flight is designed with a tighter leech than a pure slalom sail. This increases acceleration and efficiency and allows you to use a smaller sail.

    6 Batten Design
    Since foil sails do not need such an emphasis on control, we were able to reduce the V8 Flight to 6 battens, cutting out un-necessary weight and giving the sail a softer feel and better pumping / gybing abilities.
