NO CAM FREERACE SAIL

The freerace sail Rapid performs powerfully with its sporty 7-batten slalom outline and all that without camber in a light freeride manner. Yet NoCam does not imply a loss of performance. In fact, it’s quite the opposite - early planing, instant acceleration and exhilarating top speed are the Rapid’s hallmarks.

KEY FACTS:
> Camberless freerace sail with easy handling
> Offset clew, inner eyelet for more control and handling, outer eyelet for more low wind performance
> More square-ply in the sail top for lighter feel and stability
> 7/7 Cross Batten Concept for maximum profile stability and aerodynamics, all battens are tube battens
> RDM compatible up to 6.7 sqm, more handling with equal performance

The Rapid’s 7-batten layout combined with Kevlar Lines gives it a precisely defined profile and long lasting shape. Due to this self-stability of the sail, it planes at high speeds as sovereign as never through any wind hole and lets you reach unimagined top speeds. Uncompromising performance meets effortless handling and maximum speed.
For the new models, sail designer Renato Morlotti has reduced the monofilm proportion in favor of 3 mil Square Ply and 4 mil Bi-ply, providing the sail with more stability and durability. Similar to the Freerider Zoom, the mast sleeve of the Rapid has been minimally widened to further improve rigging comfort and rotation. The range of use of the Rapid Sail is extended by another highlight: the offset clew eyelets fully utilise the maximum trim range. In low winds, the outer eyelet allows an earlier planing and a more efficient pumping. High winds? No problem! The inner clew improves sail control as well as the handling of your sail. Thanks to the balanced and the stable draft of the sail you get quick accelerations and high speeds in every session.
Fast, faster, Rapid - the NoCam Freerace sail without any compromise.

WIND SPÉCIAL TEST 2021 | RAPID 6.7 2021

Test Report Windsurf Sail Surf Magazin, Windsurf Journal, Planchemag, Windsurf UK, Windnews

Performance is this simple

DESIGN: The Rapid's structure is held together by 7 tube battens and Kevlar stripes. The mast bag is made of thick material. Two clew eyelets are available. The 2021 version has been upgraded with a new lightweight Square Ply "Turbo" fabric in the sail top. RDM/SDM compatible up to 6.7.

ON THE WATER: Rigged according to the Gunsails recommendations, the Rapid has a large opening loose leech to relieve pressure and a luff that looks like it lacks tension with a loose mast panel and battens that extend over the mast. However, there is plenty of tension on the clew. The whole thing provides a fairly light rig, which you can adjust to your liking. The planing attempts are accurate, but not the most explosive, you need a minimum of wind to start (but the difference remains minimal). The Rapid can then be quickly leaned back and no longer twitches. The acceleration is excellent with an amazingly smooth sail. The pull in the back hand disappears completely, providing a riding experience that is anything but strenuous. The ride is in speedrun mode with a board that moves free of limitations, light and playful on a lively water surface. Excessive speed is the order of the day, as long as you accept it and know how to handle this rush of energy under your feet in terms of riding technique. The more the wind picks up, the more the Rapid shows what it can do. In the end, the No Cam Freerace model from Gunsails lets you go fast with ease.

VERDICT: The performance version of the Gunsails NoCam sail is on top of the new generation of freeride boards, offering surprisingly easy performance and a great way to raise your level. The Rapid 6.7 combines lush acceleration, speed and ease of use. The Rapid 6.7 is the ideal choice for a sporty or 100% freeride board.
