Bic Cruiser 7.5

Jun 16, 2009

Luff: 490 Boom: 223
Sold as a complete inexpensive package with a spiffy caring case for all the parts, the Bic Cruiser is all about hassle-free sailing. Rigging to spec gives you a sail that works beautifully in light air. It feels surprisingly light and reactive to the wind. At the 7.5 m2 size, it’s perfect for bigger folks looking to enjoy themselves as they progress towards sailing comfortably at planing speeds. When rigging for planing conditions add a two-three extra centimetres of downhaul and outhaul to make the rig more stable. This won’t transform it into a race sail, but it will give you a smooth-pulling sail that is controllable at speed. It feels great in transitions as most light weight RAF sails do, but care must be taken to ensure a long life as it’s not built with as much reinforcement as the other test sails.bicsport.com
