Raising the Spinnaker

With the help of friend and experienced sailor Paul Gascoigne, we raised the "new-old" spinnaker. From a Cal 40, this sail was an eBay find. The light wind was perfect for this first raising.

You'll notice Paul has a pager on his right hip. 

It appears Paul is looking for his pager. See it now?
And in this photo?

The sail also came down without a  hitch.

This was hilarious. Especially when Roy commented he saw it fall off several minutes later. HA HA! Classic!
