    Default New sail from Tushingham reprises old name

    Ad at the top of the Boards page alerted me to this:

    www.tushingham.com/windsurfing/sails/concept

    Four battens.
    But wasn't the 'Concept' a classic Tushy sail from another era?

    The wind looks rubbish over Easter but try beaches open to NE winds on Sunday.

    Made from Rip-Stop material if I remember rightly. In a nasty green colour. A friend had one, if you know what I mean.

    Green, yellow and pink wasn't it? In fact, wasn't everything in the '80s? I had a 4.4m IIRC

    Had the 5.7 and 6.4 199 a pop IIRC. Like the way tush talk about lightness but fail to tell us how light.

    Nice initiative. This should be the ad alert tread.

    I was alerted by this ad. Nice page and they have the news that Gullito came out on top in the last PWA freestyle.

    Has anybody seen a Starboard ad lately? Please feel free to post a link.

    Do any sail manufacturers quote the actual weight? I think they purposefully avoid it since, unlike with boards, they don't want to compete with each other on weight. It's a shame because I think reducing rig weight can be more beneficial to the sailor than reducing board weight.
