Product Description and Specs

Add performance sailing when reaching or running. The Hobie Island spinnaker kit includes a snuffer launching and retrieving bag which makes handling the spinnaker as easy as can be. Simply pull on the halyard line to launch, set the sheet and off you go! To lower, ease off the halyard and pull on the retrieval line. The spinnaker drops and stows directly into the snuffer system. The kit includes a mast head wind direction vane for use while rigged for the spinnaker. Note: Spinnakers can be challenging to rig / sail and may not be for the novice sailor. We recommend you rig and test on land then learn to sail the spinnaker in light winds.

This is my second review of the spinnaker. Bottom line....I really like it and the more I deploy it I am sure my line handling skill level will improve. I normally sail my Tandem Island solo so sometimes I need more than two hands to make it all work well together. The picture for the Spinnaker Kits shows two different colored lines, one for the halyard and one for the two sheet lines. Both lines are the same color in the kit I received and this added to my initial line management problems along with managing the main sail lines which all get piled up in my lap......but this a minor issue.

Although I have not sailed with the spinnaker more than a few times.....I found that the written installations instructions could have used more detailed diagrams to install that additional hardware needed. I found the installation video produced by Hobie to provide a good overview of the installation process. I have had my Tandem Island 4 years and sail it at least 20 times a year. Adding the Spinnaker sail has increased speeds when reaching and running. However, it has added a halyard and sheets to the cockpit area and this adds to the complexity of line management. I had trouble of retrieving the sail back into snuffer bag and Hobie staff gave me good advice to loosen the tension on the snuffer bag straps. I trailer my Tandem Island which still requires setup time before launching the boat. Rigging the Spinnaker takes me about 20 additional minutes be I can launch. As I start using this sail on a regular basis I am sure I will be more skilled in its deployment and retrieval. I have added three additional blocks for sheet and halyard handling. This is another good addition for the Adventure Island and Tandem Island. I am a happy customer and user.
