Hoyt gun mount spinnaker system

The gun-mount pole, which stows along the guard wires, is slid forward to its mid-way position in its pulpit-mounted, swivelling, sleeve, so that acts like the yard below a topsail or topgallant on a square rigger. This geometry keeps the sail ‘open’ to the wind; the function of a conventional spinnaker pole to windward.

The head of the sail is attached to the spinnaker halyard as with a conventional spinnaker however, the sheets attach to the clews via rings on the two ends of the gun-mount pole, allowing the sail to be de-powered when necessary simply by releasing either or both sheets.

The pole is ‘steered’ by way of 2 ‘reins’ so that the sail’s angle to the wind can be controlled very easily. Unlike conventional spinnakers there are no uphaul, downhaul or guys.

The original design includes a deck-level sock or chute to launch the sail from however, Cross-Jack’s arrangement includes a conventional snuffer which is hoisted and lowered from the deck – all other lines are led to the cockpit.
