Re: rigging a spinnaker pole

Easy, just use the padeye back from the bow, with a bridle for the downhaul. I like two to one's for this type of downhaul, but I guess if a winch or jammer is handy one to one would be fine. You only need a single set of sheets for light stuff. I'd go something lightweight to help it fly in the light winds that you will probably be playing with it.

Re: rigging a spinnaker pole

If you're going to do end for end gybes, then you have to rig the pole with bridles, top & bottom. As both the topping lift, & foreguy, have to pull from the center of the pole, regardless of which end is on the mast, & which end is outboard.
