That's more or less the idea. A tack line from the stem fitting (where the headstay attaches at the bow) to the tack of the sail would be fine, allowing the foot of the sail to clear the bow pulpit. Better still if you could lead that same line back to the cockpit (through a turning block at the bow), so you could adjust the luff tension easily.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The lazy sheet will just lay across the deck I assume. As I perform a text book gibe, because the tack is above the railings, as the sail comes about, under perfect conditions, with a top notch crew, the lazy sheet will pick up off the deck, not get tangled in any other lines, become the active sheet, while the active sheet comes across the bow, clears the railings, will lay perfectly across the deck to become the lazy sheet.

As all this is going on the spinnaker will stay full of wind, no one goes overboard, and you can hear the cheering from the other boats with the hint of jealousy.

Piece of cake.

Have I missed anything?

This seems like a Kodak moment.

You missed where the spinnaker wraps around the forestay cause the skipper turned the boat too fast... and the boat gets knocked down due to the spinnaker wrap.
