    es ist leider wirklich so: je steifer der mast umso kontrollierter und einfacher ist ein foil zu fahren. Kommt nur auf den Geldbeutel an ;(

    Es gibt in der neuen surf gerade hierzu einen Test, die surf hat Alu gegen Carbon Mast bei verschiedenen Foils div. Marken getestet.

    Das Grundfazit ist eigentlich durchweg deutlich: Die Unterschiede auf dem Wasser sind marginal bei den getesteten Foils und es ist eine Sache des Budgets, ob man sich die kleinen Unterschiede leisten möchte.

    Natürlich hinkt das auch ein wenig, die surf Tester sind was leichter, Alumasten sind teilweise nur 85cm lang statt 95cm Carbon. Die Grunderkenntnis war aber wie sie war.

    Und da schliesst sich für mich auch wieder der Kreis zur hochwertigen und (auf Wunsch) härteren Finne:

    Eine teure custommade Carbonfinne braucht kein Normalo-Windsurfer, der sportive Windsurfer und Profi sehr wohl. Viel mehr, je höher das Fahrkönnen beim Racing ist und je höher das Fahrergewicht ist und damit das Gesamt-Materialpaket mit meist größerem Board, wo man aussen steht und deutlich größerem Racesegel, sprich mehr Hebel.

    Hier wird dargestellt, dass selbst der IQ Carbon Mast (zu) weich ist, das ist ein absoluter Witz. Die Zahl der Leute, die tatsächlich einen noch härteren Mast brauchen als den IQ Carbon Mast, findet man nicht mal an einer Hand hier im Forum.

    Mir persönlich fehlt da stark die Objektivität und vor allem die Verhältnismäßigkeit.


    Unberücksichtigt dabei ist der Kopffaktor. Ist gibt ja durchaus viele Leute, die nur mit dem besten, neuesten und auch teuersten Material gefühlt auch besser fahren können. Was in der Regel nie zu beweisen war... ;-)

    Die Frage ist auch hier nicht, wie hart/steif man bauen kann, sondern wer es überhaupt braucht und damit umgehen kann, auch mit seinen Nachteilen.

    Ist doch wie bei harten Finnen, die braucht nur eine sehr kleine Minderheit und die Mehrheit fährt damit schlecht bis gar nicht.

    Das war Tag 2:


    Rutkowski Sets Early Pace in the Racing with 2 Bullets From 4 Races, but Things Remain Tight at the Top


    Day two always looked like it had the potential to produce some light wind racing and that’s exactly how things played out with winds of 6-12 knots throughout the day, which provided just over 6 hours of excellent foil racing. By the close of play 4 eliminations were able to be completed - meaning 1 discard has been achieved already - whilst Maciek Rutkowski (FMX Racing / Challenger Sails) heads up the overnight rankings of the Men’s Slalom at the Mercedes-Benz Windsurf World Cup Sylt.

    Golden hour in Sylt


    Men’s


    Slalom


    Maciek Rutkowski enjoyed a brilliant first day of racing to take the early initiative in the Men’s Slalom. The Pole looked blisteringly fast throughout and he used that speed to great effect as he notched up back-to-back bullets in Eliminations 2 and 3 to gain a stranglehold over the event. The 30-year-old barely put a foot wrong all day - recording a second place in the opener and 3rd in the last, which he currently discards, to hold a 3.3 point advantage over Pierre Mortefon (Fanatic / Duotone / Chopper Fins / Phantom Foils) at the top of the rankings.

    A great day for Maciek Rutkowski


    Mortefon made the perfect start as he claimed the opening bullet of the event, however, after a dream start, the 2019 world champion was eliminated in the semifinals of Elimination 2 which saw him drop from first to fourth. The 33-year-old bounced back strongly in the last two races as he recorded a second and a fourth to climb into second place and is within striking distance of the top.

    Pierre Mortefon


    Matteo Iachino (Starboard / Severne Sails / Starboard Foil) is just 0.3 of a point further back as things remain tight at the top. The Italian also missed out on one Winners’ Final, but was able to discard a 10th place finish in Elimination 3 to keep himself firmly in contention for the event title with counting results of two seconds and a third.

    Matteo Iachino


    Having made a solid start to the racing with a 5th place - Amado Vrieswijk (Future Fly / Severne Sails) - made a costly mistake in Elimination 2 to be eliminated in the quarterfinals after missing his boom on the rig flip of the second gybe. However, like Mortefon and Iachino, the Bonairean bounced back brilliantly - claiming third place in Elimination 3, before signing off the day in style as he clinched victory in Elimination 4 to climb from 8th to 4th. Vrieswijk stated that he’s aiming for a podium by the end of the event and he’s prominently placed at the end of the first days racing.

    In the opening 3 eliminations - Mateus Isaac (Severne / Severne Sails) - didn’t finish outside the top 4, which left him occupying second place. However, the Brazilian couldn’t quite maintain that position at the close of play. Isaac was involved in an incredibly tight finish in the semifinal of Elimination 4, but just lost out to Maciek Rutkowski and Luuc Van Opzeeland (Severne / Severne Sails). Isaac would go on to win the b-final - securing 9th - which he currently discards to finish the day sat in 5th.

    Sebastian Kördel (Starboard / Severne Sails / Starboard Foils) is the only other sailor alongside Rutkowski to boast a 100% qualifying record for the Winners’ Finals. The German was extremely consistent throughout recording 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th place finishes, which sees Kördel currently sitting in 6th place.

    Sebastian Kördel


    Johan Soe (FMX Racing / Point-7) produced one of the performances of the day as the 18-year-old raced with a maturity beyond his years. The young Dane has already recorded some eye-catching results - 9th at the Défi Wind earlier this year and 7th in Croatia, and proved that it wasn’t just a fluke again today by not finishing outside the top 13, whilst recording excellent 4th and 6th place finishes in Eliminations 2 and 3 respectively to deservedly earn his place in the top 10 - 7th.


    SY22_sl_Johan_Soe.jpg

    Johan Soe in the mix


    The top 10 is currently completed by Luuc Van Opzeeland, who bounced back from a disappointing first race with two fifth places and an 11th, Croatia’s Enrico Marotti (JP / NeilPryde) and Denmark’s Sebastian Kornum (JP / NeilPryde), who is just half a point ahead of Rytis Jasiunas (FMX Racing / Point-7) and Jordy Vonk (Fanatic / Duotone).

    Enrico Marotti gives chase


    Tomorrow looks set to see an exciting day of action, which is likely to see both the Freestyle and Wave fleets in action throughout the day. The forecast currently promises winds of 20-40 knots from the southwest accompanied by waves of up to 2.4 metres, so there should be another excellent day of sailing to come. A call will be made at 6:45am (GMT+2) tomorrow morning with regards as to whether to run Waves or Freestyle. A skippers’ meeting for either fleet will then be held at 7am with a first possible start at 7:15am. The Slalom fleet will have a skippers’ meeting at 10am.

    Ich hatte dir die Frage bereits im Dezember 2021 beantwortet, siehe noch mal hier (ein paar Beiträge zuvor deine Frage zur Lattenanzahl):


    Schon merkwürdig wie händeringend nach Argumenten gegen die Verwendung von Dachboxen gesucht wird.

    Von wem und welche händeringenden Argumente?

    Händeringende Argumente hört sich für mich nach Scheinargumenten an, also vorgeschobenen Fakten.

    Wo sind diese?

    Ist es das Board, was ich bei F2 für euch angefragt hatte und trotz online Verfügbarkeit und mehrfacher Nachfragen von mir laut F2 nicht verfügbar sei?

    Und dann trotz Bestellung durch euch direkt bei F2 erstaunlicher Weise doch ausgeliefert wurde?

    Na, so macht man Geschäfte, kann man so machen.

    Abwarten, von mehr man mehr Geld bekommt und dann einfach dorthin liefern. :-)

    Das wird Patrik zu gegebener Zeit selbst kommentieren.

    Das alles hier von mir veröffentlichte greift viele Monate voraus und ist längst nichts offizielles von Patrik.

    Wir reden hier von einer Verfügbarkeit frühestens zur kommenden Saison, wenn nichts dazwischen kommt.

    Wie von mir geschrieben, sind das Aussichten „unter uns“.

    Ich war davon ausgegangen dass das klar ist.

    Das war Tag 1:


    Registered, Rigged & Ready | Plus World Title Hopefuls Offringa, Browne & Vrieswijk Share their Thoughts Before the Start of the Event


    The inaugural day of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz Windsurf World Cup Sylt saw 103 sailors registering for the upcoming competition between 11:30am to 1:30pm before they made their final preparations before the contest begins. Later in the afternoon - 4pm - the Opening Ceremony was held in front of a packed out beach.

    Crowds gather for the Opening Ceremony


    With 3 world titles set to be decided over the next 10 days we caught up with a few of the world title contenders:


    Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde / Maui Ultra Fins) on being top seed in the absence of the Moreno Twins: “I think it actually makes it a bit tougher for me. In wave sailing I’ve never been the first seed and somehow for me it feels better for me to have something to work towards. I know this feeling of being at the top and being hunted by the others, so it’s tough position to be in I think. Over the past few years I’ve had really good results here though. I think I won the last two events here (2018 & ’19), so somehow it works for me here. I also like the fact that it’s so unpredictable, so anything really can happen here. There are no favourites. It’s going to be exciting.”


    How does it feel to be back in Sylt?


    “It’s great to be back. I’m happy to be here. There’s a good vibe and this is the biggest event we go to, so it’s great to be able to see all the sailors again and to compete.”



    SY22_ls_SQ.jpg

    Sarah-Quita Offringa


    Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing), who currently leads the Men’s PWA Wave World Tour and is aiming to win his second wave world title : “I feel good, I had a nice break after Pozo, spending a lot time in Brazil where I was able to sail quite a bit. I’m good, I’m ready and I’m excited to compete again.


    Before the event I was in England as some family was having a wedding there. I had some gear with me, so I was able to sail for a couple of days as well, which helped me adjust with the jet lag and the colder weather.


    It’s nice to be back in Sylt. It feels more fresh as we haven’t been here for so long. I have a lot of memories from here, so it’s good to be back.”

    Marcilio Browne


    Amado Vrieswijk (Future Fly / Severne Sails) won his first world title in 2021 and is looking to defend both his event and world title over the next 10 days: “I’m excited, but I must say that I haven’t been focusing on Freestyle at all. I can count on two hands how many times I’ve freestyle this year. I’ve been focusing more on the racing/foiling, so I’ve gained a lot of weight. The freestyle moves are still there, it’s just it needs to be windy and then hopefully I can put on a good show."


    You had a good result in Croatia - finishing 5th - do you have an aim for the racing this week?


    “The speed is there. I had some ups and downs in Croatia, but if I connect everything then I think there’s a good possibility of a podium here.”


    So, for the future you see yourself focusing more on racing than freestyle?


    “Definitely, yeah. We don’t have a lot of events at the moment, so it doesn’t make so much sense to train the whole year for freestyle.”


    How’s it to be back in Sylt? It’s been a few years…


    “It’s been a few years, but it feels like I left yesterday… It’s good to see everybody again and the forecast looks okay!”

    - Slalom Skippers' Meeting - 9am - first possible start 11am (GMT+2)
