Spinnaker Launching Bag: Pro
Measures: Fore and aft: 25" Side to side: 25" Depth: 30"

All mesh design. We made this nice and deep so you can stuff the spinnaker down and it does not start to blow back out. Slight taper at the bottom and battens on all four sides of the opening. Large race instruction pouch/window with Dacron backing to keep a wet spinnaker from getting papers wet. Has slots inside the pocket for pencils/pens.

Two side mesh pockets with Velcro flaps securely keeps your VHF safe and within reach. Spring loaded durable bronze hanks. (not included, try small 1/8" Amsteel Blue. It's slippery and allows the bag to easily slide).

Halyard Clip by SOAK

Halyard Clip by SOAK SOAK Halyard Clip
Designed for Boats up to 40'

Designed to prevent accidental spinnaker launches when sailing upwind and to keep the halyard from fouling during tacks. Plus, it automatically release when you're hoisting, so it's one less than to worry about going around the top mark. Made of high quality Nylon with UV inhibitor for durability. Nylon attachment line included.

Works best with lines from 5/32 (4mm) to 3/8 (9mm). We have found that it works best with stripped line because covered line is too rigid. For covered line we only recommend it up to 5/16".
