Re: Dousing a cruising asym without blowing the tack?

I picked up a symmetrical spinnaker in good condition yesterday from Second Wave. I'll try this with a pole first and get comfortable with that before flying the asymmetrical with a pole.

The new spinnaker is very light (0.5oz fabric), good for our light air but I'll need to be careful with it. It looks like a nice tri-radial cut and even though it is fairly old it appears to have barely been used. Overall I think I'll be able to find good uses for it where it compliments my asym instead of replacing it.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
