NorthSails released their new 2011 racing sails relatively early in the last week of November 2011. There are insider opinions, which say that this racing sail should be one of the best performing products for 2011 the team with Kai Hopf and Cyril Moussilmani made. Perhaps we will see Cyril Moussilmani making it on top of the Slalom ranking next season. He already finished in third position in 2010 in the PWA overall Slalom ranking. And there are some other strong teammates on the Warp like Jimmy Diaz, young Pierre Mortefon, super fast Patrick Diethelm or Brazilian Paolo dos Reis on the Formula board or young French lady Alice Arutkin. Maybe Northsails will invest in another big name for the 2011 PWA circuit. We don´t know yet.

Top Northsails racing teamrider Cyril Moussilmani (F-71) gave following comment on the new warp: „The last year‘s WARP was a revolution regarding its superfast acceleration, an attribute that is for sure the essential factor for winning races. The Instant. Rotation concept, NorthSails has developed for 2011 is definitely the next step and it works perfectly. The whole sail is rotating even faster now and the result is better acceleration after jibing and therefore a lot more performance. I currently don‘t know what to improve next year, as it feels outstanding! But I am sure, we‘ll find some details again!“
