Spinnaker


A large triangular racing sail located forward of the jib, attached to the mast and a spinnaker pole (boom). The sail is used when running with the wind.

The spinnaker pole allows the foot of the sail to be held open to catch more wind.

There are variations of the spinnaker that do not use a pole.
