SPINNAKER SET UP

Looking to put a spinnaker set up on my 25 footer. Any good websites or other places to gather data on installing the right equipment? Thanks, George

Do you sail alone or with lots of help? Maybe a Genniker would be more what you need. You get the down wind performance with a sail that is alot easier to handle than a spinnaker.

Actually a Genniker offers better reaching performance but does not offer anywhere near the downwind performance of either a symetrical or assymetical. They also are not all that easy to fly down wind as they tend to be pretty unstable compared to a symetrical chute.
