Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Spinnaker running rigging Re: Re: Spinnaker running rigging


There is no standard way to rig a spinnaker. The class rules don’t tell us how to rig it, they only give the location of the upper sheave and the maximum length of the boom.

Everyone seems to have different preferences. Without detailed information on where your blocks, sheaves and other spinny parts are located we can only tell you in general terms how a spinnaker is rigged, but I assume you already know that. There are some pictures on the WIT that may be of help. If you need information on the tiny details we would have to have a look at your boat, or maybe you can post some pictures of the parts you are not sure of?
