SEVERNE HGO 

OLYMPIC RACING

The Severne HGO is a first of its kind. A foil racing sail built especially for the official iQFOiL class and will be the official sail for the 2024 Paris Olympic games. HGO is based on Severne’s already successful foil racing platform with multiple titles under its belt.

In 2019 World Sailing called for Sea Trials to select the equipment for the next Olympic Games in Paris’24. When this opportunity presented itself, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel(PWA Foil world champion) took the lead of the project together with Ben Severne in creating the ultimate foil racing sail. Countless hours of R&D and brainstorming resulted in a sail that not only will you faster on the racecourse but also deliver top speeds. 

The HGO focuses on speed and ease of handle with a reduced luff curve and re-distribution of shaping. The control gained from these design features allows for any foil racing newcomer to get to competition level speeds in no time.

SEAMLESS HEAD PANEL

This high abrasion area is made from only 1 panel and does not carry any exposed seams, preventing any potential weak point in this area. As a result, seam creep and seam-related failure have been eliminated.

pointer
DIRECT DRIVE TENSIONERS

DIRECT DRIVE TENTIONERS

The DDT 4 and DDT 5 tensioners directly connect the tube batten to the leech of the sail. This new design eliminates the heavy section of tube that is needed for the standard batten tensioner and being smaller, has superior aerodynamics. It is used on all lower tension battens in the OVERDRIVE M2 and the MACH 2.

OPTIONAL CLEW POSITIONS

OPTIONAL CLEW POSITIONS

POSITION 1:

Use this position for the lighter wind days. This clew position gives you more power and upwind angle.

POSITION 2:

This setting allows the sail to open up and breathe more. It gives you more speed and more control.

CUT AWAYS 

Extra-large cutaways, more than double the size of the regular Formula’s, reduces the wetted area and improves take-off onto the foil.

SHARP RAILS AND BEVELED NOSE

The sharp rails in the tail allow the boards to get planing and reach take-off speed more easily. Additionally, the board will bounce off the water if you clip the water surface instead of sticking and throwing you into a catapult.

The bevelled nose improves aerodynamics and ultimately provides more control at high speeds.

RECESSED MAST TRACK 

Deck concave and recessed mast track for a more vertical sailing position while closing the gap between the sail and the deck of the board.

Drake iQFOiL 68 (men) 66 (women) for challenging water conditions and strong winds.

iQFOiL SENIOR FOIL

STARBOARD FOILS iQFOiL CARBON

Components: 900 front wing | 255 tail wing with -2 degree | 115 Plus fuselage | 95 Plus fuselage | 95cm iQFOiL mast

Back to back 2017/2018 World Champion and Vice World Champion, making it the most successful racing foil in windsurfing to date: Starboard’s Race foil started the iQFOiL project and it is the foil that made foiling in the Olympics a possibility. Its innovative racing geometry was the breakthrough that enabled foiling to cover Windsurfing Olympics’ wind range and performance requirements. Compared to the original Race foil, the iQFOiL foil set has been upgraded with a stiffer UHM Carbon mast and a 900 front wing for extra light-wind performance. It comes with two new Plus fuselages, the 115cm Plus for upwind downwind racing and the 95cm Plus for higher winds and racing formats with more reaching. The Plus fuselages have an adjustable tail wing angle that allows the rider to increase control in high winds or increase power in light winds.

COMPONENTSFITTINGS
Front Wing: 900 Front Wing: Saddle system 
Tail Wing: 255 -2° Tail Wing: Adjustable saddle system  
Fuselage: 95 Plus and 115 PlusFuselage: Starboard Universal Connect 
Mast: iQFoil Carbon 95cmMast: Deep Tuttle 

THE iQFOiL 95 CARBON MAST

The iQFOiL 95cm Carbon mast is an extra-stiff version of the standard 95cm Carbon mast, built with 44 layers of ultra-high modulus pre-preg carbon fibre: for more performance, more control and a wider wind range.

 

TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT

iQFOiL sets are supplied with six angle spacers (-2° / -1.5° / -1° / -0.5° / 0° / +1°) and with a new 255 tail wing that has -2° built in.

The recommended tail wing angle on the 115 Plus is -2°, so we recommend starting with the 0° spacer. For the 95 Plus the recommend tail angle is -1°, so we recommend starting with the +1°, spacer. You can reduce tail wing angle for more speed and control, or increase for more power.

TWO FUSELAGES

95+ fuselage

115+ fuselage

The iQFOiL sets are supplied with both the 115 Plus fuselage and the 95 Plus fuselage. The 115 Plus is recommended for extra power and for maximum upwind/downwind performance. The 95 Plus fuselage is recommended for reaching courses, for long-distance marathons and higher GPS speeds. 

ALSO INCLUDED

Other items included in the set: 900 Front Wing, 255 -2° Tail Wing and the Team Bag Size L. 

ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES ASSOCIATED
WITH THE iQFOiL JUNIOR PROGRAM

Each board is made 100x Climate net positive through the Mangroves planted in Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park. Our own Starboard Plastic Offset Program picks up 1.4 kg of ocean plastic per board sold. Strict environmental event guidelines and support will sit alongside World Sailing’s sustainability program.
