The light and easy spinnaker
Developed as a variant of the Parasailor, the Parasail is a great light wind performer. With very little tendency to roll, it is ideal for small crews. Use of the spinnaker pole is possible but not necessary.
No pole required
There are several ways of rigging the Parasail. While it is perfectly fine to use the spinnaker pole just like with a regular spinnaker, it is definitely not necessary to do that. The spreading moment of the wing suffices to conveniently use the Parasail without a pole.
