Spinnaker sheet/Spinnaker guy

The spinnaker is controlled by two "sheets",
but the  sheet which is led via the spinnaker
pole is  called  the guy  (or aft guy) and is
attached  to  the  windward clew of the sail.
The sheet is  attached to the  leeward  clew.
The sheet  becomes  the guy and and vice
versa when the spinnaker is gybed.

The  spinnaker pole  is  attached  to  the
spinnaker via the  guy. The spinnaker  pole
must be equipped with both a pole uphaul
and downhaul to keep the pole horizontal.

Note that the spinnaker pole downhaul must
deal with much  greater forces than the up-
haul because the spinnaker has a significant vertical driving force component. Both sheet
and guy is led through blocks on the aft deck
and on to separate winches, often dedicated
spinnaker  winches somewhat  smaller than
the genoa winches
