Latest News: Forums Racing Spinnaker set up and sources of kit Reply To: Spinnaker set up and sources of kit


We have used two laundry baskets (smallish) for the spinny. they sit one each side, are tied together with elastic behind the mast. As crew I like them, and the spinny can be put into them in haste, (you know – that later than last minute drop before the mark) and easy to sort out when things have eased and the helm realises that he needs to let the crew sort out because it needs to be ready for a throw rather than a hoist.

We do have a small plastic hook on the foward side and facing up at the bottom of the shroud just to capture the haliyard in,and we rarely have a problem with it (only with the throw esp if it windy!!)
