C&C 110 guy rigging

Can anyone tell me how to rig spin guys so they don't interfere with life lines?

I would think that you would want to run your spin sheets and guys outside of everything back to a turning block aft and then forward to your winches. Boats that I have raced on that is a typical set up.

Thank you; makes perfect sense, right down to the damage as purchased being from a final block on the rail forgotten one race night.

Outside the stanchions, yes. Also, you need to be able set a snatch block somewhere midships to keep the guy from bending stanchions on a close reach OR use an adjustable "twing line" to do the same thing.

You mention that your aft turning blocks are fixed in location, and this is rather common. Be aware that the actual sheeting point (i.e. location for those blocks) will depend on the shape or cut of the sail.
(FWIW, on our boat with the chute that came with the boat the blocks are best conveniently set beside the primaries... sometimes we get lucky in life....


Watch where the leach breaks and place the aft turning block appropriately. On a symmetrical spinnaker this might wind up being forward a few feet.

Even if.... the present location may not be optimal, you can still sail the boat and enjoy it a lot.

Post up a photo some time!
