Bill Hansen back in the sail business

Hi all,

Bill Hansen founded Windwing and designed their sails until he left last
year.  He formed Hansen Sails (www.hansensails.come) and is now making a
pretty full product line.

The store is now online at:

http://www.calcupevents.com/Stores.htm

Check it out, along with the Mike's Lab boards.

        Cheers,
                Cliff

ps I'm unaffiliated with these folks except for having "raced" in the calcup
   series for a few years.  This year I've been out of windsurfing altogether
   with a back injury, but am happy to see my heros doing well.

The pics are the same.  Looks like they are the pics of the formula
sail.  I've seen some of the proto's in person (just on the rigging
area) and they do look sweet.  Nice clean lines.  I want one baaaaaad!
will wait to see the pics of the rest of the line.

Um, ya-a!

I am really just curious about the wave sails.
Bill's sails are indeed nice looking.

Everyone should own a 2.9 wave sail with 10 battens. He may even have
a prototype for you-know-who. :)
