Neil Pryde 2022 Speed Sails Test

Andy Laufer on YouTube:
“La Palme Occitanie: 3 days of perfect Tramontana with winds between 20 and 45 knots. Perfect conditions to test the new speed sails in 5.8sqm. The beach along Le Rouet was not perfect so we decided to test those speed machines on our JP Slalom Pro 55 and 29 cm fins. The white/yellow sail is the latest proto from the Neil Pryde Development Center/Maui. Robert Stroj designed a perfect new speed sail with lots of changes. Can’t tell the details right now but the sail has got more power, better acceleration, more stability, better speeds in those “windholes” and most important for speed – more topspeed! Going straight line we have reached speeds between 41 and 42 knots, in slingshots up to almost 44 knots (81 kmh). Good numbers as the beach was not perfect.”
