For the take down, there two possibilities.
1) In light air, blanket the spinnaker with the main, lower the halyard and stuff the spinnaker back into the bag. Leave the sheets attached, but remove the halyard and stow it on the pulpit.
2) In heavier conditions, release the shackle at the pole, lower the halyard and bring the sail under the main and stuff it down the companionway. Repack the sail below.
Have fun with it.
From your name I suspect you are in Cowichan Bay.
