A nice thing about the 4000 is that its not as bad as some of the skiffs when the wind drops to practically nothing.  For instance the B14 and the RS800 park up.

B14's do not "park it" in the light stuff provided you get your weight forward, once the wake is clean they will quite hapilly sail to handicap against other asymetrics.  The even do better than most against symmetrics as the kite has a lot of luff projection and can point significantly lower than things like 400's with their silly poles.
