Recutting Spinnakers to Cruising Configuration

Hi, I often sail my C & C 30 shorthanded. The current sail inventory has a big honker symmetrical spinnaker. I would like to move to a crusing spinnaker and wondered about the viability of recutting the existing spinnaker. Is this possible or even recommended? Thanks, Dave

Tough question, Dave, which depends on the sail and what you are trying to do. My suggestion would be to visit your local sail maker and lay the sail out, and then see what he has to say. My guess is that the odds of turning it into a poleless sail are not good. – Steve
