We do not use either bags or basket for the spinnaker, it is just stowed under the foredeck in the well either side of the mast. Mk 1 woody, but I assume same for Mk2. No need to stuff it in a bag, just pull it in over the foredeck and stuff it inside the boat. The crew sometimes needs to push it forward after the drop to avoid treading on it. The halyard is clipped into a plastic clip (HA248) on the shroud adjustment plate and the sheets clipped in too when it is windy. When hoisting, the halyard releases itself and the sheets at the same time.
