Weird – I think Swiebertje posted somthing about the same time as me and now both messages have disapeared…
Anyway 2nd time lucky….
Thanks for the invite Colin. I had come to the same conclusion – a beginners setup. We struggle with the spin, in fact last year we even had the pole on the wrong side for one race – total confusion and red faces all round. We spend so much time mucking about with it that we loose more time than we gain by using it.
I think the real answer for us is simply to practice sailing courses with a spinaker – the way it’s rigged is probably more finesse than we need at the moment.
