What it’s all about?

Developing a new world class Formula sail has been a natural step for the Black Team. As the design of the new sails is completely done by the Black Team we have decided to call the new Formula Racing range the FW1. Starting from the same idea as the AC-1 slalom, the key feature for this new upwind | downwind beast are the following

The sail ha been designed with high aspect ratio outline for less drag. Instead of the 8 batten displacement, 9 Batten contruction for controlling better the leach twist. 5 type of batten configuration for optimizing the profile control throughout the wing. More luff curve then on the AC-1 slalom sails for more reflex. Deep lower profile for balancing the drive. Progressive leach opening for allowing power and speed according to needs. No base protection for quick tuning. 4 cams to force profile on the desired area of the sail.

The FW1 will be having a great drive from the profile and obtain his upwind ability from the more close middle leach compared to the AC-1 slalom. The main focus for the Black Team is to bring the FW1 not only to it’s best upwind performance, but in having the sail to be able to tackle any situation that are standard to get caught on a race course during an event. A good balanced forward drive, a nice comfortanle power on the back hand, to decide for speed upwind, or extreme angle.

The development done on the AC1 slalom sail was proved with results at the PWA. Now the same work has been done with the winning motivation on the new FW1.

‘We are fortunate to have a lot of talented formula sailors in our team. We are super excited to have stepped up the development on this one, as it will be great to get 100% back into the discipline of formula sailing! We know how selective the Formula passionate sailors are, so we have worked towards their expectations. We have worked towards delivering a sail ready to free competitors from any uncomfortable situation without having to tack away. The chance to point high and going with more speed upwind, comfort, which is what you need when sailing these oversize sails!’

Ciao a tutti, sono Fabio Calò (ITA-720), ho iniziato a fare windsurf all’età di 13 anni e da quel momento è diventata la mia più grande passione, la mia vita. Finiti gli studi universitari ho iniziato a lavorare in un negozio di windsurf a Torino, poi agente di commercio e nel 2006 è iniziata la mia grande avventura con la redazione di 4Windsurf e poi anche di 4Sup. Sono stato campione italiano Wave di windsurf nel 2013 e 2015, altri ottimi risultati agonistici gli ho ottenuti anche nel freestyle sia in Italia che in Europa. Dal 2017 sono il direttore di una delle scuole più importanti del Lago di Garda, il PierWindsurf. Trasmetto la mia passione con progetti dedicati ai giovani come il Progetto Serenity di Malcesine, e organizzo Wave Clinics nel periodo invernale. Vivo a Torbole sul Garda e respiro l’aria del windsurf 365 giorni all’anno.
