About the fins I am not out yet, I need more testing. [Read...]

Foto van het outhaul systeem van de North Sails Platinum giek. Briljant. Werk soepl, makkelijk optuigen en er is geen outhaul oog nodig.Foto van het verstel systeem van de North Platinum giek. Vreemd, niet het makkelijkste, maar voelt wel stevig. Je moet eerst de klem over de buitenste buis schuiven naar de lengte die je wil. Dan het eindstuk uit/inschuiven tot de klem boven de gaatjes zit (hiervoor zitten witte stippen op de binnenste buis en dan kun je de giek vast zetten.Foto van het logo op mijn North Sails Plantinum Carbon 215-265.
