Wink Re: Researching spinnakers

You guys are cracking me up! I wasn't going to say anything about the "Wham" background, but since someone already did....I just have to laugh! And the weeping in the cockpit because of someone flying a spinnaker (whether it be asymmetrical or symmetrical) solo with no autopilot....this is just great stuff. I can't wait to print this stuff out for my husband!

So, I'm thinking symmetrical is the way to go. Although I'm still going to give him cash and he can figure all of this out. I now have a number for a local sailmaker and some good contact info to order one on-line.

Thanks for all of the videos and info. I now feel good about this year's present. Watching the videos, I can see how fast you can go with a spinnaker up. He will LOVE that! He has an autopilot and he has myself and two boys, so we should be good to go!

Thanks a bunch! Katty C
