Jib Rigged 2/1 blocks snag on downhaul
Hello again from trusty 5339: Christened "ARGO". Has someone got a solution for me about the jib sheet blocks on 2/1 setup getting snagged on Spin downhaul when coming about in light air? We almost always get light air on our tiny lake and we come about maybe 20 times in some races. Did I say our races start out at a narrow finger of our small lake? In light conditions the two pulleys catch on the spinnaker topping lift or downhaul line when they pass close to the mast. I bet someone has a nifty solution. I am thinking about leading those lines through a pvc pipe strapped to the base of the mast, but wonder if there is a smarter solution.
