These popular battens are light, strong and cost effective.

Unlike other leech battens which are parallel at the back, our new shape has a progressively stiffer back section to give extra vital support as it tapers back to the leech.

The result is much better control of the leech section from main sheet tension, and a more gust responsive leech.

2014 A Class Worlds - Takapuna New Zealand

 

Excellent range of conditions from light,medium and strong winds and quite flat water. The wind was challenging with shifts of up to 20° at times and areas of more or less wind strength.

Really it was a case of two fleets - the 'Foilers' and the rest.

The Foilers were using J type centreboards , the rest normal C type curved boards.

From the top 10 , Foilers finished 1,2,3,5,6

A breakdown on gear used was:

1st , 2nd , 3rd ,5th DNA / J Foils / Ashby sail / Fiberfoam #14 Mast

4th Exploder / C Foils / Landenberger / Fiberfoam #14

7th , 8th Exploder / C Foils / Ashby / Fiberfoam #14

9th DNA / C Foils / Brewin / Fiberfoam #14

10th Nikita / C Foils / Brewin / Fiberfoam #14
