How high for the spin?


Recommended Posts

I sail the equivalent of an older Windrush -- called a Trac 14 here in the USA. I've rigged mine with a furling spinnaker for the past couple of years attached about a foot above the mast hound where the sidestays and forestays attach. Here's my question: How far up the mast can I safely go to attach the top of the spin without risking a permanent bend in the mast (assuming leach tension, of course)? I'd like to try a larger sail and would rather not learn the hard way! Can anyone share success or failure from experience?
