Comment se servir du Patin d'Amure
Le Patin d'Amure se compose d'une partie plastique (en polyethylene incassable) et d'une sangle textile terminee par un mousqueton d'un cote et d'une manille rapide de l'autre. La partie plastique est ce qui va glisser sur la voile d'avant enroulee. Le mousqueton permet d'ouvrir la sangle et de passer le Patin d'Amure autour de la voile, il se fixe sur l'anneau de la manille rapide. La manille rapide se fixe sur le point d'amure du spinnaker. Le hale bas se fixe aussi dans l'anneau de la manille rapide, ceci permettra de liberer facilement le point d'amure du spinnaker lors de l'affallage."

Bien sur, on peut se servir du spinnaker sans le patin d'amure, mais le spinnaker est alors imparfaitement regle, souvenez vous que le spinnaker symetrique est dessine pour etre etabli en gros 1 metre au dessus des filieres, et que sa bordure (partie du spinnaker entre les 2 points d'ecoute) doit etre parallele a l'horizon... Dans le cas du spinnaker asymmetrique, au grand largue, le point d'amure devrait etre un peu plus haut que les filieres (la forme du spinnaker impose cela) si vous ne disposez pas du Patin d'Amure, apres avoir choque le hale bas, l'amure du spinnaker serait sous le vent, et le spinnaker devente par la GV,...

The ATN difference is worth it.

The Tacker The patented Tacker has been developed to control the tack of the cruising spinnaker (asymmetric) by fastening it over the furled headsail and it allows you to use your conventional (symmetric) spinnaker like an asymmetric spinnaker from beam reaching to broad reaching without the need of the spinnaker pole.
Press Review:

"We think the TACKER is a terrific way for casual sailors to get more use out of their spinnakers ... The inexpensive TACKER allows you to fly a conventional spinnaker without a pole"
