Dear Guys

Surely someone has experience about the best dimensions of the spinnaker and the lenght of the pole.

Next days I have to buy a spinnaker from the sailmaker.

Can someone tell me the ideal dimensions (square feet, weight and the length of the 3 leeches) for a crew of 145 kgs?

Can someone tell me the lenght of the pole?

Thank you!

Stefano

In your quest for the right H18 Spinaker Pole. I measure the four H18s in our fleet that have custom spinaker poles. They range from 127in to 140in. I do not think the guy with the 140in is correct. It looks way to long. I believe the 130in is perfect.

I'm running a Tiger chute on a 12' pole with end snuffer. It fits well on the 28' standard mast with a turning block and bail at about 25' up. Mine is a solid mast, no comptip.
