Another success story, we used our boom tent and I sailed one-up with the spinnaker (well sort of).
Donna was inside the cabin when I decided it was time to hoist the spinnaker with no help and see what would happen. The hoist went well as I was able to get forward for an instant to get to the halyard, I had already squared up Shazza and I was running pretty much dead down wind. I hoisted and then pulled the track then sheeted on--all good.
Unfortunately the drop was not so pretty as the tack line did not want to run freely so I ended up with the kite (un-torn for once) in the cockpit and facing head to wind--oh well I will try again soon.
