Francisco Goya has always had a heart for racing, so developing the new Mark 2 in collaboration with him came natural. If anything, the focus was on lightening the sail significantly.
Further emphasis was placed on a lighter handling feel and highwind control through refined luff curves and seam shapes as well as the Mark 2’s outline.
The boom lengths on all sizes are shorter compared to previous years.
All this said, the Mark 2 remains our throroughbred 2 Camber performance Freerace sail. A combination of excellent top-end speed, performance oriented bottom-end power, superior control and stability.
The Mark 2 offers white knuckle cam sail speed and cam sail stability without needing to rig “oversized”. You can enjoy the blistering speed and range of the sail without feeling like you are wrestling a dinosaur. The Mark 2 is best rigged in range, meaning not oversized. The design is cut to be super powerful, with the idea being to ride this sail as small as you can for the board you have. This means your sail is easier to handle because it’s smaller, there is greater efficiency overall and also less energy spent handling through maneuvers and transitions.
The Mark 2 is highly interactive, it can set a line and blaze, but it also likes quick changes of direction, upwind, deep off the wind, speed lines and carving turns. A high-performance sail based on flat out racing designs and specifically developed to perform on Hydrofoil and Slalom boards alike. Designed with real world racing and foiling in mind, it pairs best with the Proton Pro IV.
RDM or SDM compatible on all sizes, except 5.4, 5.8.
Monofilm window, Bi-Ply and Scrim panels.
Available in 5,4, 5,8, 6,2, 6,6, 7,2, 7,8, 8,5, 9,2 square meters.

Just planning a new quiver and wondering whats the low end of the 2022 6.6 Mark2 on a 70 or 80 RDM mast.
Targeting Windfoiling:(Frontwing size 1800cm2) starting at ~7-8knts
Windsurfing: staring at ~11+ knts
The 80% is a great mast, not only it is strong, it has a good reflex. I use it at Hookipa regularly.
For sure the 100% will add some lightness and reflex, especially for this larger sail, so if you can I would advise this option.
Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.
Thank you once again for considering our gear.
I have not long ago purchased a 6.6 and 7,8 mark2
having sailed them a good few times now in very marginal conditions and maxed out also I have to say they are AMAZING!
So easy to use yet so FAST!! even in big choppy conditions
gybe like a dream and so straight forward to rig.
I am defiantly going to add a few more to my quiver .
not buying race sails any more no need.
THANKS FOR A BRILLIANT SAIL
Amazing evolution from the Mark!!!
It is a super stable sail and all the wind it receives makes it push forward.
I bought a 6.6 and together with my Bolt 105 goes to the plane with the slightest breeze.
It is the perfect equipment for my 77Kg and light wind.
Thanks Lalo and Jason for helping me to choose correctly.
