Re: Sailing jib and spinnaker at the same time
Every boat is different, and each time you set out in it is different too. For some boats, jib & spinnaker at the same time is normal. For others it doesn't usually happen, but could. It depends on the boat and the conditions. The jib might blanket the spinnaker depending upon your heading or the windspeed, or it might not. It might have a big effect or it might not. It might be too much to handle or it could be no problem. Everything on a boat changes all the time.
