Yes, that is the standard setup for a symetrical spinnaker. With spinnakers the desired tack height varies greatly depending on point of sail etc. Being able to keep the pole level maximizes projected area. Of course it could be used for a whisker pole as well.

Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

Is it attached the eye on the vertical track attached to the front on my mast and the clew of the sail and kept horizontal? This system looks like itís designed to allow you to adjust "horizontally" the Whisker pole on both ends. The mast end with a adjustable track and the Jib end with a topping lift.
Right?

If I run wing on wing in light air? YES
Is it attached the the vertical traveler and the clue of the sail and kept horizinal?

Mast (should be an eye), topping lift (its not a halyard) and CLEW, not clue. Yes, horizontal.

Thanks for the reply. Yes it is on the front between the spreader and the mast foward light. here is a photo to help you see it. I'm sorry for the quality of the photo. How does this halyard put into play? If I run wing on wing in light air? Is it attached the the vertical traveler and the clue of the sail and kept horizinal? Sory to ask a dumb question. I, still learning all this stuff.
Thanks for your help. Heres the photo.

Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

I have 1 Main Halyard, 1 Spin, Haylard, 1 Jib haylard. I also have a internal short Haylard? What is it for. Is that for the Wisker pole??

Yes, although you dont have the forward genoa track show in the diagram, and your aft track may service, I assume it would although its is hard to say from the picture.

Note the diagram for a high clew #2 would seem a reaching configuration, pretty sketchy as a closehauled plan, as you would use your 150% to 18 or so, most beercan racers dont have a #2. I would think you would delay your reefs 3-4 knots versus this schedule.

Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

That track is far aft, maybe the former owner only raced in light air, that short track may only fit a large jib, maybe a 170% or a 150% with a high clew. If the 150% is your primary use sail, hopefully it'll trim OK to that track.

When you want to start improving higher wind performance, you need to install a similar track aft the chain plates for a smaller jib, someone on the C&C list should have the factory location diagram for that track (I had it 30 years ago, but stuff wasnt digital then...). until then, whenever you use a small jib you will be pointing some 10 degrees or so less than optimum.

Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

Yes, there is a track on both sides just before the wenches. They are like 30" or so long. there is an adjustable slider that can be locked down were ever you want to lock it. I will try to find a photo. Seams like the standing rigging and the safetylines will cause a restriction in the movement.
I will look for a photo.
