TACK SET

The tack-set is a harder manoeuvre for the crew, and occurs when the boat approaches the windward mark on starboard tack and must tack around the mark. The foredeck team begins to set up for the manoeuvre. The first job is to put the pole on the mast.

As the boat tacks around the mark, the genoa sheet is released for the tack, the spinnaker halyard is hoisted and the spinnaker pole is raised up the mast as well.

From a tactical position, this can be a strong manoeuvre as a starboard tack boat maintains rights all the way to the mark.
