If you do still want to take them off, I would recommend a sharp chisel, t...

Team racing entry will not increase in price for a few weeks, as we know that there is a bug on the website and you haven't been able to enter.

Re: Moth style foils..

Hi Dan You should be fine measuring in a "trim tab" type foil. Both Rob Greenhalgh and Alistair Richardson used them in Sydney and other events. The one lifting element part of the rule is designed to stop you getting lift from one side only and thus gain righting moment - so your "trim tab" can't b...
