The normal solution is to install a Spinnaker Bail at the masthead. If you have the LeFiell mast you can get one here:

Masthead Assemblies"

I have a spinnaker it safe to assume I have the necessary hardware aloft, then, to fly another headsail? Seems so....


But go look at it. The spinnaker bale will be forward of the mast. The spinnaker halyard will not run over the sheaves at the top the bast. There is likely a block attached to the spinnaker bale that the spinnaker halyard is running thru.
