We have owned a 79' Pearson 365 ketch
for about a year now. We have sailed all over S. Alabama
and in the gulf many times but have yet to try our spinnaker
set up. I would love to try sailing down wind
with a chute up but have never done so. I am looking for some basic instruction and any tips to make it easier for us to attempt it.
pole is the same on both ends as far as hardware
goes, and have heard there are several types, all with their own benefits. I really have no idea how to rig it, get it up and flying, switching sides or even if I can run the lines back to the cockpit
. Do you use the jib
winches or is it better not too? Do you use a line on the live end of the pole to control it? Any info. would help greatly! Thanks!
