Hey Guys

I am having trouble snuffing the spinnaker. It is getting hung up going into the snuffer sock.
Its rigged just like in the Hobie instruction video but it will not snuff.
Any ideas?

Thanx

It will be hard to snuff with no wind pulling it forward.

I've noticed the tighter you make the straps that hold the sock onto the Akas the more horizontal it pulls the plastic piece in the front, therefore making the opening smaller. I give my straps a little slack so the plastic piece can rotate up and the opening gets larger.
