The Cruising Spinnaker

20.00

The cruising spinnaker is the one sail that greatly improves the performance of a cruising boat because it adds so much speed. On light air days it provides the horsepower to keep a boat moving without resorting to the loud, smelly engine. In stronger winds, a cruising spinnaker turbo charges any boat."The Cruising Spinnaker A-Z" The movie is a true "A-Z" treatment because it teaches more than just how to jibe and trim the cruising spinnaker. Viewers learn handy tips on how two people can hoist and douse the cruising spinnaker, what kind of sheets work best, what equipment is needed to use the sail, how to enlist the help of the wind in moving the sail across the boat during jibes, how to pack the sail into its bag so that it will launch easily, what to look for when adjusting the height of the tack, and much, much more. Some sailors are intimidated by spinnakers of any kind; however, the cruising spinnaker is designed specifically for short handed crews. For starters it doesn't fly from a spinnaker pole, which makes setting and jibing the sail simple. Secondly, the use of a dousing sock replaces the need for several long-armed crewmembers. (shipping within the U.S.A. included).
