The site doesn't let me do PMs or emails yet (I need to post more first), so until then...
I did contact somebody at the Lake Chelan sailing club, who gave me some guidance. But I still don't know what I need to use the spinnaker. I have the sail, but if I understand correctly, there is a pole that is required to use it. I'm going to have to get somebody to teach me how to use it, as that's currently beyond my pay-grade, just moving up from lateen rigs
- but it would be nice if I could get some photos, diagrams, measurement, etc so I could know what to look for, or how to make one in the mean time.
Also - I understand that there needs to be a modification or add-on to keep the centerboard in place in case of capsizing. What is a good setup for that?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give!
