thanks, I think I need to get a second run from the top so I can rig a chute.... at least an asymmetrical... running downwind with jib and main is just hard to maintain unless in close to fresh breeze and consistent direction... I don't have a pole, that would help too I suppose... have never sailed with one.
I have a pole but it is really heavy. I got an old pole vault pole from the local high school and got some ends from a resale shop and assembled it all together. It works great. My spinnaker is an asymmetrical.
