Gaastra Plasma 6.7

Jun 16, 2009

Luff: 450 Boom: 210
The Gaastra Plasma is a new breed of sail that seeks more power from a smaller package. At only 6.7 m2, we found it had a difficult time keeping up with the 7.5 m2 sails, but it displayed enough to make us confident that the power of a Plasma 7.5 would at least equal that of the most powerful sails in the test. Like the Neil Pryde, the Plasma also likes wider boards and has amazing control at speed. Considering the tighter leech, deep draft and long boom that create all the grunt it’s pretty quick and has a good sense of efficiency. The wind range is very impressive as this 6.7 was still in use when we got some of the sails from our 5.7 m2 test fleet going. The only compromise for all its straight-line goodness is a firm pump and proper rig balance is needed to get the cams to rotate. gaastra.com
