Spinnaker

By Barbara Bray
A spinnaker is a special type of sail that is designed for sailing off the wind from a reaching course to a downwind. In other words, spinnakers are used with the wind 90 to 180 degrees off the bow. The spinnaker fills with wind and balloons out in front of the boat, called flying. Spinnakers are only used at certain points of sail so raising and lowering them is a task often performed while under sail.
