I have heard of another technique for stowing the spinnaker: The retrieval line passes through a ring on the end of a piece of elastic. As the spinnaker is pulled in the retrieval patch comes up against the ring and stretches the elastic. When the spinnaker is fully retrieved and in the chute, the retrieval line is released and the elastic pulls the tail of the spinnaker back under the foredeck. Sounds simple and I hope that I have explained it sufficiently.
