- Starboard Foil Race 100 Carbon Reflex Board
- Starboard Race Plus Carbon Hydrofoil
The Foil Race concept is similar to the concept of iQFoil boards. While the iQFoil boards needs to fit the rules of the iQFoil Class, the Foil Race can benefit from some extra advantages. The Foil Race 100 goes beyond the iQFoil’s 95cm max width limit for the ultimate in upwind/downwind racing performance. The Foil Race 85 shares the same shape as the iQFoil 85 but while the class-legal board is available exclusively in a budget-friendly construction, the Race Foil 85 is made in the lighter Carbon construction.

Maximum power, maximum upwind performance and the earliest take-off.
The new Race Plus swaps the 115 Standard fuselage for the new 115 Plus fuselage.
This new fuselage shifts the front wing forwards and reduces tail wing angle to make it more aligned with the front wing, creating what we call a High Efficiency Foil Geometry (NZ Pat. App. No. 751177). With both wings flying through the water at more parallel angles, you release more speed, you get quicker acceleration and more control.
“It’s like someone released the handbrake” Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, PWA Foil Champion.
The new benchmark in maximum performance foil racing. Designed to race and win.
Front Wing: 800
Tail Wing: 255
Fuselage: 115 Plus
Mast: Carbon 95cm
Front Wing: Saddle system
Tail Wing: Saddle system
Fuselage: Starboard Universal Connect
Mast: Deep Tuttle
Note: the 115 Plus fuselage is supplied with six angle spacers ranging from -2 degrees to +1 degree. The recommended Tail Wing Angle Spacer for the RacePlus is -1.5 degrees or -2 degrees:
-2° for wind speeds of 10+ knots (recommended default angle)
-1.5° for wind speeds of 8-9 knots
-1° for wind speeds of 7 knots
-0.5° for wind speeds of 7 knots
-0° for wind speeds of 6 knots
+1° for wind speeds of 5 knots
These suggested tail wing angles are based on the 255 tail wing and 800 front wing. Your optimum tail wing angle may differ depending on your tail wing size, your body weight, sail size, sailing style, personal preferences and front wing size.
