What size Spinnaker are you using? (26M)

I have a small spinnaker from my previous boat (20') that I tried out and it flew nicely. Would like to see a big kite out there and am wondering how big is going to work and not tip me over.

One of our sailors here is using an old E-scow symmetrical spinnaker on his 26D for racing. It works great, however, he suggests an A-sail for cruising. He got his S-sail for almost nothing because most E racers are going with A-sails.

I use the Asym that was sold with the boat.

Works great

Perfect config for the mac is main, jib, asym

When its lite, use the asym

I also used a main and genny, does not work nearly as well
