SDYC Sailing Tips: C420 Downwind Set - Part 2

By Shone Bowman, Jake Reynolds & Austin Dias This video shows how a medium-light air spinnaker set should look. Notice how the crew has the pole ready to push out before the windward mark. Also, notice how their kite luffs once (if that), before the crew has the sheets and the kite is full. The less time the skipper has to hold the sheets and wait for the pole, the better. They could be using this time to assess laylines, pull board up, and release vang. Nice set team!
