Replying to:Spinnakers
Oright I'm an idiot, OK! When I fly my kite both the brace and the sheet seem to be too high and don't appear to allow the spinnaker to atain proper shape. When my daughter was sailing 420s we had a little hook on the shroud to bring the foot of the kite down. I have various bits of cleats and dead eyes around my boat, should I be looking for something half way along my boat to help the kite?, or am I just setting it wrong. I do ease the halyard and that helps but it still seems to want to fly too high. Currently I rig the kite on turning blocks and over center cleats at the stern. HELP! Yes I do have a kicker on the pole but it doesn't seem to help.
