Assymetric Spinnaker

I just ordered an Assymetric Spinnaker for my
Beneteau 281. Although I have found some information on setting up and sailing with an Assymetric Spinnaker the info is sparse. Does anyone know of any books, videos or other sources that cover the setting up and use of an Assymetric Spinnaker. Also any experience anyone has had with the set up and use of an Assymetric Spinnaker would be greatly appreciate. Thanks

Assymetric Spinnaker

Check the articles on sail net there is a good article on asymetrics....

Are you using a bowsprit? I am assuming no.

WHen I fly my asymetric cruising spinnaker I use a dousing sock. This make setting so easy. Raise the sock, pull the control line with a little sheeting and its a done deal.

I attach the tack to the head stay that has a furled sail on it with a 1" nylon strap. There are devices to do this. Neil Pryde Sails makes a parrel bead strap that rolls up and down the furled sail. There is also a device called a tacker...

Attaching the single hank onto the strap. I run the sheet back to a turning block on the toe rail just in front of the stern rail stantion.

Sailing wise it acts like a big genoa. My ten year old does the sheeting.
