Adding extra ballast to an RL28

Post by mdedman » Jan 20th, '18, 11:13

After many trials and discussions I finally decided to permanently add 140kg of ballast to my RL28 increasing the ballast ratio from 26% to 36%. You can definitely feel the difference in motion and how soon sails need to be reefed. For any other RL28 owners out there I have made a video of the process I used that can be found in the performance and modifications section or click HERE
