Starboard Race Plus Carbon Foil
Maximum power, maximum upwind performance and the earliest take-off.
Compared to the original Race, the new Race Plus swaps the 115 Standard fuselage for the new 115 Plus fuselage.
This new fuselage shifts the front wing forwards and reduces tail wing angle to make it more aligned with the front wing, creating what we call a High Efficiency Foil Geometry (NZ Pat. App. No. 751177). With both wings flying through the water at more parallel angles, you release more speed, you get quicker acceleration and more control.
"It's like someone released the handbrake" Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, PWA Foil Champion.
For racers looking for even more VMG upwind, a 115 Plus Plus fuselage is also available as an upgrade item. This places the front wing even further forward.
Both the Race Plus Carbon and the Race Plus Aluminium use the same 115 Plus fuselage and the same full pre-preg carbon front and tail wings.
The 800 front wing is a high-aspect wing designed for all-round racing in medium to high wind conditions. The Tom Speer-designed profile is thin and relatively symmetrical, delivering speed with consistency. It has enough shape to provide constant lift and traction at various speeds. This is critical for negotiating low wind lulls, handling high wind gusts and making a wing you can trust all racing scenarios - overtaking, defending your line, recovering from small errors and foil jibing with confidence.
The 255 tail wing is the default tail wing for all foil racing. Thin, fast and super-efficient, it's a staple for your racing foil quiver even as it evolves. The gentle moustache shape helps with yaw-stability.
The Race Plus Carbon is supplied with the Carbon 95cm mast. It is built with forty layers of pre-preg high-modulus uni-axial and bi-axial Toray carbon, hydraulically pressed, heated and fused into one monolithic mast of incredible stiffness. The shape of the mast has also been optimized for flexural and torsional stiffness. Computer-simulated analysis shows the Starboard mast, by virtue of its shape alone, is already up to 52% stiffer than a traditional mast.
The Race Plus foil is designed for maximum power, maximum upwind performance and the earliest take-off.
The Carbon version is supplied with a carbon mast and the Aluminium version is supplied with an aluminium mast.
