Am in a position to try a Simbo rig... well perhaps a varient of it.
You can read about the Simbo rig here. downwind twin sails set up for Simbo safe ocean and coastal sailing Najad 570
I am thinking about using my telescopic spin pole (in it's fully retracted state) to pole out the windward genoa
, and run a dedicated control line for the genoa
(separate to the genoa sheets) to a block on the toe rail (as you would with a spinnaker
sheet), then to a cockpit winch
I'm thinking of using the main boom (prevented at 45deg off centre) with the main up, and the end of the boom becoming the pole for the leward genoa. The leward genoa would have the same independent control line as the windward one, and run to a block on the toe rail as well.
This may seem like a lot of hassle, but we're not comfy flying the Spinnaker
with only 2 crew and the helm
on board, especially as forecast
winds are on the fresh side.
