small spinnaker wanted to use for canoe sailing

Post by amyb » Mon May 09, 2016 7:05 pm

Hi all,
Haven't had the ToY out too much lately, lots going on up here in north wales.

Wondering if anyone has an old spinnaker (symmetric) available that I can turn into a canoe sail for rafted canoes. something small, about 4m2, perhaps from a mirror or cadet. almost any state considered as I can patch things up.

pretty certain I have a couple of old Merlin kites, and maybe a cadet kite in the container [ and I'm in N Wales]

sounds promising Tony,

A Merlin Kite is probably too big, but I could always reshape and size to get something that would work with the A frame mast we construct over rafted Canoes!

Are you going to Staunton Harold?

Unlikely, [family issues] but not impossible. Will decide last minute.

I'll see if I have a spare Mirror spinny. Should have, if so, I'll be at Staunton Harold.

Yes an old oppy rig could be modified for a solo sail which I may try on the canoeI'm making. Need a spinny for a rafter canoe rig, generally I can think of plenty of uses for old sails!
Thanks everyone
