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.

A very good addition to the Hobie Island. Increases performance in any wind condition. Wing and wing running is easy because the size of the spinnaker is approximately the same as the main sail. The spinnaker can be carried from a dead run to just forward of a beam reach. A trampoline is most helpful to keep the snuffer box and spinnaker from dragging in the water when you have any wave conditions. Trim the top main sail batten flush with the top of the main sail. This helps prevent the spinnaker halyard/back stay from fouling with the main sail. Another improvement is replacing the cheek block behind the snuffer box with a pad eye and a swivel block. This improvement allows for easier retrieval of the spinnaker into the snuffer box.

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.
