All about the FIRST 18 SE's Gennaker system

The First 18 SE equipped with a system that makes it easier to use the boat’s asymmetrical spinnaker, especially when hoisting or dumping: the sail is stored flush in a spinnaker snuffer, linked to a single rope that acts both as a halyard and a dumping line. Before setting up the sail, place the boat so it is running downwind, preferably on a starboard tack and make sure that there are no objects that could damage the spinnaker when it goes into the snuffer. Happy sailing!
