I am looking at buying
a used S2 symmetric spinnaker
and am unsure about sizing. It will only be used occasionally so I don't want to pay for a new one. I know to be IRC legal
the foot has to be no more than 180% x J. My question is on the leech/luff length. My I = 61 feet, but my spinnaker
pole is about 5 feet off the deck
, so going with a 61 foot luff/leech would seem to put too much curvature in the luff. Obviously going with 61-5 = 56 feet would be too tight. What should is a usual luff/leech length - on line sail makers just ask for the I and J.
