Developing the fast smaller sizes of the range has been the result of
dedicated work from many prototypes. The aim was to target the correct
balance to improve the power of the sail, and into increase the
stability in light wind, without losing the trade mark of their hyper
speed. Changing sails which have set important results in events such as
Defi wind, PWA wins, and taken as reference from many sail brands, had a
certain responsibility; well it's all done. From September you will be
amazed to feel the new power of the smaller sizes. Increased performance
in light winds and stability in the strongest gusts from the new 7.9
and 7.2 due to the new outline in the boom area. A totally new outline
for the 6.2 and 5.6, where the area of the sail has been moved to
balance the power more on the lower part of the sail. This offers extra
comfort and speed which cannot be compared to the previous models.
Exactly, be ready to have the new AC-One 2017 delivered in September!
impressed on how development works in Point-7. It was the first year I
worked on development with the Black Team. There is no waste of time, no
restrictions. It's all done in a very practical way, that once the next
change is thought, in no time we have the sails with the changes, and
the next days we are testing. With the fact that Andrea is on the water
with us, and he can do the changes, we have no limitations or waiting
periods. We don't need to organize testing days or weeks, Andrea is
following us around the PWA, he is training with us in Tenerife in the
winter, so we never stop working on the sails. The needs in racing keep
changing; the gear needs to be updated to follow these needs. When I
joined Point-7, I was impressed by the power and speed of the sails.
This year, we have given to each size a big improvement with new
innovating ideas, that can be seen just from the specs. I'm totally
excited by each change, the master piece in racing is an evolving art
that with Point-7 is possible.
