His guitar amp doesn't go to 11, it goes to 12.

Re: More Foil Content Part 2

Thinking of getting on board the Moses bandwagon but not sure of the right wing(s). 1100? 720? 683? What’s your take?

If I could only own one it would definitely be the 1100.
Especially with the lighter winds of summer around the corner. I’ve used mine in 12 to 30 just adding and removing shims and it’s been fine, I rarely use my 790 anymore.
You’re welcome to try it tomorrow if you come to old federal.

Also, the 950. Little brother to the 1100. Lifty but a bit quicker and more range.
Given that you are accustomed to smaller wings the 790 may still be a good fit.

Until I can get back on the water. Biggrin Check out the jibe at 0:40. Notice how the sail sweeps all the way across his face. I'd been struggling with my port (left hand in front) jibes the last couple of weeks and it finally clicked how much I wasn't doing this and when I did, the mojo returned. It's not as important with smaller sails but for big sails it helps a lot. Work your way a good bit upwind and then bear off and do a chain of jibes. It's much easier when you are bearing off a bit instead of going from reach to reach.

Flat water blasting in the Netherlands. Nice jibes, too. Wide one at 2:08 among others. Good
