Does anyone out there fly a Gennaker? We typically sail our Merit 25 with a crew of 2, and sometimes my 9 year old son in addition, so the Spinnaker is not something I am ready to risk
Problem is, every time we have tried to fly the Gennaker, it gets wrapped around the forestay, and is impossible to untangle without taking it all the way down!
It is necessary to pull it out of the sleeve to extreme starboard or port? Is boat angle to the wind critical?
Any tips would be much appreciated!
