Flying a Spinnaker

This link has some interesting thoughts on flying a spinnaker.  Some of the drills are harder than others.  I would really like to learn to do a windward launch.  Would be useful at times..

Also some other useful tips on packing and using a spinnaker in the following link.  Some people say important to mark the center of spinnaker on foot and start there to put in the bag..

Some pictures of spinnaker flying at Watauga, some good, some not so good.  At least no one got a picture of us hoisting the spinnaker upside down!  An hourglass is an interesting shape, but not so much for flying a spinnaker..
