Whether it’s foil or fin, the most important is to get on the water and have fun. The F1e is the perfect balanced sail to have great performance both when using a foil or fin under your board.
Developing a sail able to satisfy all needs on a foil under 15 knots and blasting on a fin from 13 knots up to 21 knots.
7.6 Slalom: a full slalom sail designed to blast on any free slalom to slalom board, both for fin or foil.
The 7.6 will feel as great as any of our slalom sails when used with a fin. It has been cut to fit the foil, but without sacrificing the stance on a slalom board. 2 cams under the boom to give drive and stability to the foil, as well as control when powered up on a slalom. Reduced mast sleeve size over the boom makes the sail light for flying, and comfortable on a fin when maneuvering. He short boom and high aspect reduces back hand power when foiling, and this bring the sail to be enjoyable also in stronger wind when windy.
The right sail to have as the biggest size, with incredible range if used with both foil and fin.
The Point-7 Black Team. A team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves by designing the winning sail for the World Champion in the PWA Slalom and Freestyle World Tour. Winners of the Defi Wind, record holders from the One Hour Classic. Pwa Vice world champions.
The F1e sits in the Point-7 range as the recreational sail for both foiling and fin. Designed specifically for fun and user-friendliness, but at the same time giving the extra edge for both uses. Having to work on a foil and on fin, you would think the sails to be compromises, but thanks to the smart set up, and wind range they will be used in, the sail will outperform any expectations.
The F1e having the cams, need to have the mast inserted over the cams in the mast sleeve. Downhaul 10cm to the end. Place the boom head and pull the clew. Place the cams on the mast, and pull the downhaul down to the foil settings, or 3cm for the fin setting.
We took time to come out with foils sails, as at the beginning there was just a rush to have a foil sail, by justifying a small change. We took our time as we did not want to make a recreational foil sail to be used only with foiling. We know that people will mainly use their foils in lighter winds, but then will also windsurf with the fin as the wind picks up. So our thought was to make a sail to work good with both foil and fin.
- Designed for foiling up to 18knots from zero.
- Designed for fin from 13 knots to 21 knots.
- The only big sail needed if you foil for fun.
- Early planning and easy handling and
- 7 battens and 2 bottom cams on the 7.6
A deep profile, 2 XXL cams and a wide sleeve as a race sail under the boom donating. Stability for the foil, and control in strong fin wind.
Over the boom, the sleeve shrinks down to a pure no-cam. Easy as a wave sail to uphaul, or water start. No water can fill up the lower wide sleeve and does not create any heavier leverage.
The top of the sail has a smaller head for more stability in stronger wind. Light feel in handling and has a slight opening all the way to the top to release wind.
Leach opening is more closed to kill back hand both useful in light wind foil and medium to high wind slalom.
2 eyelets. High one for slalom, lower one for foiling. A smaller clew cut out to increase stability on a foil.
The base will fit the fin stance, but the foot is lower to close more the gap when foiling.
5mil Anti UV- X-ply base panel for protection from accidents.
4mil Anti UV X-ply laminate for high reactivity
X-ply alternate batten pockets for lighter weight and reflex
Lower Dacron wide sleeve for extra power and comfort. 2 cams for maximum drive a butter rotation.
Anti-UV transparent grey window to have a 100% Anti UV-Monofilm sail. All our Ply, X-ply and Scrims monofilm are produced in the Unites States.
