Luff: 453 Boom: 190
With a long boom length and two battens below it, it’s not a surprise that the Pursuit excels in straight-line performance. Good power and a slippery stable ride help make it the fastest sail in the test. Tuning is simple with downhaul adjustments modifying the feel negligibly while extending the wind range. The recommended setting gives a high draft that balances well on wider double-rear strap boards. An extra half-inch of downhaul lowers the draft just enough to make it work on faster single-strap boards. The increased downhaul tension can be observed as the leech progressively loosens without flattening the sail too much. The Pursuit is a flatwater freerider’s dream; easy to rig and dial-in harness line placement for the fastest ride in the test.
