Point-7 AC-1: fast as a Ferrari

The code number of the wonder sail is AC-1 and the process of designing this object involves passionate human beings and computers.

Andrea Cucchi, racing windsurfer and member of the Point-7 crew, studied the new concept and had a brainstorming session with his three sail designers.

The best profile, the reinforcements, the materials, the outline, the prototype, they all were carefully analyzed. Initially, the AC-1 was designed through the computer. Then Cucchi and friends decided to plot out all the sails on scaled down 1:2 papers, instead of monofilm.

The "scientific job" of fine tuning the sail was the next step. Finally, the computer mixed the modifications made and all the pieces were cut out in real sail cloth.

It was time for a road test, which means H2O. The first Point-7 sail "Made in Italy’ was completed. 15 windsurfing have tested the Point-7 AC-1 Race Sail and confirmed that a F1 race killer was born.

Surfing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will take place in the ocean, not in a wave pool. The waiting period runs from July 24 to August 9.
