sandboy is on a distinguished road
A little trick when your making up your spinacker sheet's and Guy's & halyard make sure you buy snapshackles with a swivel if you buy them without when you launch the kite any twist in the rope under pressure twists the sail plus with the swivel's if you get an hour glass it spin's out by itself as soon as pressure is put on your sheet this solves 90% of hour glasses in fact went through the last three racing season's with every twist undoing itself
