Dang it, on the wrong coast! ie left coast myself.
Socks are pretty easy honestly, Hoist the sock head up with halyard. make sure the sheets and tack line are correctly installed where you want them, Then hoist the sock from the front deck. Then some one in the cockpit needs to make sure the clew is somewhat sheeting in etc as you hoist the sock.
You do not need the jib up to hoist it, nor do you need it up to dowse. If you find your self in Seattle before flying your sail, look me up, and we can go out in my boat. Or find your self out here either on the 7th, 14th or 28th, and you can join me on those races that are 20 to 35 miles ea!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
