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.
