Re: Rigging up an A-sail

i have a 12' carbon fiber 4" dia. retractable bowsprit that swivels side to side on curved track at the rear. on the top front of the mast is a bail with a strong swivel block and a external halyard. this works very well with either of my two asymmetrical spinnakers on my 30ft nimble express.
