Gaastra Pilot 2015
Anyone from an absolute beginner and beyond will enjoy its effectiveness. This lightweight user friendly rig allows its rider to progress and improves his or her skill effortlessly. A mast tolerant luff curve allows you to use a variety of masts with different bend characteristics. Super light, great for waterstarts and sail handling skills. An ideal ride for beginners getting the basic windsurfing moves dialed.
Keeping the outline as simple as possible, we improved the batten configuration to compact their positioning, incorporating the Stabilized Head design. These new features, along with a revised panel layout (with less panels and also a repositioned luff panel), make our entry level sail even better in all aspects of sailing. From an absolute beginner to more performance-oriented sailors, the Pilot is a great sail that allows its user to progress and improve their skills.
First, we are using the ?straight leech? design to keep the rig?s outline as simple as possible. Improved Compact Batten Positioning and a Stabilized Head configuration adds more comfort and control. The revised panel layout creates less seams, whilst we also reinforced the clew area for added protection. Bigger sizes have five battens; 4.5m and 5.0m have 4 battens, and all can be rigged on a 430 mast. We continue to use colored CFilm which offers greater visibility and recognition on the water with a much longer life due the high UV resistance. The Dacron luff panel provides the best solution for a neutral behavior.
