I have a spinny and its a little tricky to jibe its so close to the forestay I think a little longer pole might help. Make sure you lead your sheets forward of the tack atleast that worked for me I don't really use it much but its fun.

The basic Wave without the spinnaker, seat back rests and trapeze is a great boat. Simple..simple...simple. Really fun to sail in a blow!

If you feeel the need for a challenge, you can easily add the stuff.
