I sailed the new Starboard 107 this morning in 5 - 25 knots of wind with a 7.3m sail.

The board has plenty of volume to get going but doesn't feel too big when fully lit. I used the Black Porject 35 race fin and had no spin outs at all. The scoop in the deck really helps with control. Compared to the 101 its so much better. The 101 for me was ok with a 8m sail but when you put a smaller sail on it felt bouncy and out of control. The 107 trims just great through chop and is lightning quick to excellerate peaking at 36.09 knots today.

All looks good for Port St Louis

Photos to follow.
