A simple RAF slalom outline puts the 2012 Pursuit at the level of fastest in its class. It uses an even shape distribution for smooth transition from the fullness of the lower sections to the flatter upper sections. The soft luff curve values make the simple tuning and easy rigging found in good RAF sails. Low downhaul tension can be half of what may be expected so the ‘sweet spot’ is easier to find.
The 2012 Pursuit has a wide range to handle a broad variety of conditions, and the light weight always makes it easier to spend more time sailing with ease of waterstart a prime benefit. This year we continue to ad more XPly™ materials to make the Pursuit experience a long term visual pleasure.
Tube/rod battens ensure excellent draft stability, high end control, and balance at speed. The supple organic feel is responsive to changes in wind and waves. The foil is an efficient power generator with twist progression suited to open ended blasting and carving jibes. A subtle clew cutaway shortens the boom, enhances jibing smoothness, and is perfect for waterstarting with minimum effort.
