2012 Race Sails from Gaastra and Severne

This is the 2012 Reflex111.  A few differences over the current model, most noticeably the positioning of the batten tensioners.  You can now draw a straight line right through the tensioners from top to bottom.  This makes more sense to me.  This line is also closer to the edge of the sail as it moves down towards the boom.  Awesome looking sail!
The new Vapor is one pretty sail and its performance is going to be something special.  Ross Williams has just won the WaterZ 2011 Downwind Race in Denmark on it, blitzing 300 other windsurfers including some of the top guys.  I only see one zip on the sail but I suppose you can get to the other cambers via the boom cutout or the bottom of the mast tube (?) Slightly worrying
