Re: Spinnaker Question
James' points are well taken... and why I asked how long/low your spinnaker pole car track was.. You can fly an overheight symmetrical by carrying the pole lower.. but it will make gybing a bit more problematic, and you may be limited, of course, by the height of your lifelines as well.
If not racing, then any 'penalties' are not an issue, it's simply a matter of whether or not you can keep things flying.
