Mark Pro - Freerace 6 Batten
The Delta Quick Review: As a brand usually associated with Maui and wave sailing, Goya is doing a lot of work to branch out into other facets of the sport. The board range now has more freeride and slalom models than ones for the waves. The sail line is expanding in this direction as well, and we know there is a cam'd sail that could see the light of day in 2018. But for 2017 the no-cam Mark is the raciest sail. Having the Nexus already established for recreational freerider's, the Mark has been made as racy as a no cam can get. There is a noticeable amount of seam shaping to give it something of a cam like shape, and while the luff sleeve can take an SDM mast it is still fairly tight on an RDM, once again helping lock in the shape. On the water the sail feels very stable even when taken out in conditions that would overpower lesser sails. The cam comparison is very easy to make in straight line performance and even in the gybe there's a bit of a thunk like a cam sail... not as bad, but more than you'd expect for a no cam. The head twists perfectly to make tuning easy, and by design, it absorb huge gusts so all you notice is acceleration. It truly is as racy a sail as you can make without cams.
Speed racing made simple. The new Mark is a quick to rig and easy to tune camber-less freerace sail that delivers breathtaking velocity on the water.
With impressive low end torque and acceleration combined with easy handling when super powered, the Mark allows you to focus on your line and tactics rather than managing your sail.
Super lightweight 6 batten build plus truncated boom lengths give the Mark a compact, light, easy feeling as you accelerate, when you are powered up and through high speed technical transitions. The Mark pairs with Freeride, Freerace, Slalom and Race boards and matches best with the Bolt Freerace.
Recommended freerace mast 99 Pro.
Optional flatwater mast 70 Pro.
Available in yellow.

Pro Scrim & Monofilm
The Scrim material used in the main panels offers super strong durability, super light weight and a supple and alive feel. X-Ply luff panels, stiff and light tubular battens, CSC™ Carbon Stretch Control, TCR™ Titanium Clew Ring, RSS™ Rip Stop Sleeve and the MTF™ Molded Tack Fairing round off the peak quality package. Sleeve cut treatments as well as tack and foot reinforcements are now folded to increase durability and prevent edge fraying.
A scalloped upper leech reinforcement prevents breakdown of the leech from fluttering in strong wind conditions such as Omaezaki, the Gorge and Pozo. The Mark comes with a 5mil Monofilm window, offering crystal clear optics, light weight and a crisp direct feel.
