Silly question . . .

When there's no wind or the kids get to bored we play silly sailboat games. One that the kids like the most is hooking a ski tow handle with a short rope to the spinnaker halyard and swinging the kids off the deck into the lake.

Is this a level of stress that the rig can reliably handle without harm? What about if the weight swung off is an adult?
