V36 Spinnakers..... got any?


Recommended Posts

Hi Y'all

I have got myself a nice wooden V36 built by John Gale and it has a ton of shiny new suits of sails, but no spinnakers.

Before I ask my favourite sailmaker to knock some up for me, has anyone got some lying around that they may be willing to part with?

On the US Vintage Model Yacht Group website there are some patterns for various types of spinnaker.  You do have to scale them to a suitable size but I have made a few Marblehead and 36R spinnakers up using polythene sheet and double sided tape.  Elizabeth went over the taped seams with a zig-zag stitch on her sewing machine.   There is a link to the article here:-     https://usvmyg.org/boats/sails/the-spinnaker/
