Re: Rigging up an A-sail
To properly fly a spinnaker you need to add a spinnaker crane.
If you want to use an asym for performance, you need to also add a sprit to get sail area, otherwise you should use a symmetric with a pole. Flying a cruising chute (no sprit, no crane, no pole) would be better than a white sail, but not close to a sym or large asym.
