A-Class: New DNA F1 'X' preview

Latest update for the DNA F1. After the Exploder D3 Team dominated 2017 Worlds at Sopot, DNA and Mischa Heemskerk felt the need to update an already great platform. Mischa has published this shot today in his fb (follow for updates) while waiting for wind to race at Campione del Garda.
I'm preparing an interview with Mischa on his career and latest developments he has been involved, included this new F1.

New foils, rudders, rake trim controls and case position are the possible modifications from the original F1, along a hidden mainsheet plus the no boom setup.
Sail is small pinhead by Mischa Sails, which were proven at the past North Americans.

Note how he force camber on the upper sail section (on the reduced chord) with a pretty flat entry at foot/tack height.

Will be interesting to see how the sail performs in light winds for him against top European / Aussie D3 riders.
