TRIM­MING AN A-SAIL TACKLINE

SAIL - - Boat Works Ask Sail -

Q: I fly an asym­met­ri­cal spin­naker from a sprit on my 35-footer and was won­der­ing about how best to trim the tack line. I’ve seen cases in which other sailors have brought the tack of the sail all the way to the sprit, and cases in which there are a cou­ple of feet of tackline be­tween the sprit and the sail. Is there a right way and a wrong way? Should I be ad­just­ing the tackline in and out de­pend­ing on an­gle of sail or wind speeds? — Am­ber Rat­ner, Parma, OH
