I will be ordering a cruising spinnaker
kit soon from sailrite
for a hunter
40. I know that some kites come with leech and luff lines, some regular line and others spectra. Looking over the Sailrite
kit, it just has tape.
- Are the lines nessesairy? and will I want them?
weight, .75 or 1.5? Lots of oppinions out there.....what is yours?
- Boat is in Saint Petersburg but will mostly be using the sail on the gulf. I want to use it in light air yet I don't want to worry about blowing it out on a reech or closer to the wind
. As for wind
speed, I'm not sure that I will be comfortable flying it in 20kts and probably even 15 due to my experience. Besides, at that speed the other sails
on the boat should be providing a good enough push.
My former name was "Bus Driver". It's something that I chose quicky to get registered the first time to ask a few questions. I didn't realize how much I was going to like this site so now I have changed the name to something that has meaning to me. Not sure what the policy is for that on the forum but I'm sure I'll find out.
