* A 'Spinnaker' is a special type of Sail that is designed specifically for Sailing 'off the Wind' from a reaching coarse to a downwind with the wind 90°–180° off the bow. The Spinnaker is constructed of lightweight fabric, usually Nylon, is often brightly colored and balloons out in front of the boat when it is deployed, or flying.
The first boat to fly a Spinnaker was the "Sphinx" which in 1958 was sold to the Naval College Mürwik. In the 1960's and 70's the Navy won a total 9 times the “Blaue Band der Flensburger Förde” for the fastest local Yacht.
Watch has some issues but will come back nicely, does anyone have the band?
