Quantum Racing is on the eve of beginning our 2017 season. A 60-race no throwout regatta that rewards consistent yachting, boatspeed, and reliability in our gear. In our three month “off season” we took a critical look at all areas of improving Quantum Racing's performance. One area we looked hard at, but is difficult to quantify, is windage. Think about it in terms of a floppy shirt versus a shirt that is pulled tight on your body. For sure a tight shirt is less windage than so following this thought process we looked at the most obvious area, the shrouds.
