  1. Hi interesting method,
    Also how do you determine the required rode to have out? And do you take the height of the bow roller into consideration ?

  2. Yeah ok … so I read a lot of the comments and I agree with them. Lots of great footage of lines on the deck and working winches and pulling sails … no real technical information on how the dang thing is rigged or understanding the process. Even the music was monotonous. Sorry … but all that great video quality going to waste on very little content.

  6. Why did they pull it down like that and not just do a reverse of the launch and smother it with the sock tube thing (I know there is a technical name for it) and then lower it into the bag it is stored in?  Not they are going to have to raise it again just to put it away neatly.  Plus there is more chance for he spinnaker to get damaged just chucked below like that.

    Or is this what you do when you are going to be raising and lowering it regularly in a single passage ?

  8. Я первый раз в жизни такое вижу. Чтобы в щель между гиком и нижней шкаториной грота убирали спинакер.

  9. And now do it again alone or with just two people. That's more realistic….
