I cant remember how it works on the 800 but my favouite trick for that in the 29er was to make the mainsheet strops really long in light winds so that you could not sheet the main all the way to the centreline.  Seemed to work well in the really light stuff.  Only problem was that if the wind built you had to remember to change them.

Dunno i think they should make a younger person's style boat e.r single hander with trapeze and fast but easier to sail than something like the 700?

 

Maybe they could call it the 500 seeing as they have all the others and 100 would mean it was the lowest performace they made !

Maybe there isnt much call for that kind of boat in the market but it would be good !

I have encountered stalling in 2 very different types of boat. 1. the Laser where it is possible to stall the foil by using a vigorous roll tack and not let the main out enough, and 2. the RS800 where in lightish winds if you oversheet the main the foil gives up and the boat slows very noticeably - it feels like you've just hit a muddy bottom.

This is not necessarily anything to do with laminar flow vs. turbulent flow sections though - the laser dagger board is NOT a laminar flow section.  What you describe for the laser is a case of the foil operating at too high an angle of attack so it stalls.

The Tasar and Laser 2 both have laminar flow sections and personally speaking I haven't found them too thin to stand on...

i think it is cos the manufactures think if it is cheap teenages will buy it and they wont cos teenages wont a cool fast boat not a cheap slow one.

Surely a RS 500 would have to compete with a 29er, ISO, 4000 range 2 man single trapeze!!

maybe it could be a boat were you can sail on your own or with a crew.
