    If you've got a spinnaker you've got a photo. Post it!

    My ploy to get SAF (Spouse Aproval Factor) was to print coloring book pages of the panel layout and showed the color pallet for this A2. She picked the best Hers (iirc) and I simplified from five colors to three.

    Can you see me now?

    It came with the boat. I suspect it’s never been used (!).

    I fly it off a Selden bowsprit on a Profurl Spinex.
    A joy to behold.

    Thank you for the opportunity to show mine off yet again! In case anyone here isn’t familiar with the South Carolina state flag, this is the South Carolina state flag. The name of our boat is Palmetto Moon.

    Speaking of Admiral Approval. I can no longer fly my symmetrical spinnaker with a pole. So I bought the ATN Tacker and she loves it. 20140319_102825.jpg 20140319_102851.jpg

    One of our spinnakers, the photos are of the same wipeout, a view from our boat and from another boat.

    Our boat is an old racer. It came with 4 symmetrical spinnakers of different cloth weights and sizes. The one we've gotten the most use out of is 1/2 ounce light air chute. We used to use it a lot when the kids were young. On a reach with 10 knots of wind, it's a hand full. MJ spinnaker reach.jpg

    Tom, that is perfect. There's a kid who's happy to be on the boat. Hope she always is.

    I love solid colored kites. Here's kestrel with 'Big Red', our reaching symmetric.

    First out of the bay.

    Our 310 with the Asymmetrical and one with the symmetrical. Our previous J24 with its symmetrical. The 310's chute is the same pattern as the J24 chute. Irish Flags. We did not order the Asym for the 310 so it differs but I like it!

    And one of the J24 with a different chute. All of our chutes over the years have carried the Green, White, Orange color scheme.

    I know, new crew member on the spin sheet, and it way over trimmed to begin with. Can't drink beer and eat snacks while you're holding a sheet. Main trimmer did manage to ease the main without ever setting his beer down, but that probably made the spin out worse without easing the spinnaker at the same time.


    Here we somehow found ourselves to windward of everybody with our code zero, when we should have never had it up.
