The spinni on our new Hartley or rather the chute, has given us similar difficulty, so I’ve read these recent posts with interest. Launching and setting is no problem, but recovery has been a challenge, and like finalgambol, it’s then under the crew’s and children’s feet (we’ve only sailed 4-up so far!). I will try trimming the halyard/downhaul as a first step. Our first race will be on Wednesday evening, but based on the forecast, it’s looking like a bit of a drifter.

Dare I ask – what’s Viagra-impregnated bungee?
