Hi All

Does anyone know what length the spinnaker sheet should be for when we convert our Tiger to a double block set up? The sheet supplied will be too short but I don't know by how much.

Also, any tips on attaching a thin "leader" line for the clew??

Thanks in advance.

Our spi sheet length is 13,6 m

The sheet is conneted to the spinaker in the middle with a short line spliced
The ends go to the ratling bloks near the daggerboards and then to the frontbeam blocks

Mine are from 44 to 52 feet. They always get some adjustment while determining what works.
