Iím rigging an RS Vision for the first time. The spinnaker tack line emerges from the inboard end of the bowsprit and goes nowhere, just loose around the crewís feet. Where is it supposed to go? Does it tie off somewhere?

Ta,
Dave

If it's like a 400, it goes forwards around a block or over the bar that holds the pole down, then back to a cleat.
So pulling the string pulls the tack to the end of the pole, then pulls the pole out.

No thatís not right, sold mine years ago, enjoy. RS call it a gennaker so worth searching that. There is a great rigging guide but I canít find it sorry.

Nah, weíve got a 400 too and itís a different arrangement. The 400 tack line goes through a block and cleat. The Vision has nowhere obvious. I guess Iíll just tie it off somewhere and see how it goes

Thanks,
Dave

Try this:

[later]
I see, however, nothing that shows where the inboard end of the tack line goes. I suppose it comes rigged and they assume no-one will ever remove it. The text suggests it runs somewhere to the starboard side of the mast.

Looks like it's a single string system like the 800.
The tack line is pulled by a block on the kite halyard, so pulling the kite hayard shoots the pole out, pulls the tack to the end of the pole in one function involving pulling lots of halyard. So the kite halyard comes out the base of the mast going forwards, around a block on the tack line and back to the cleat. I think some people rig 400s like this too?  Page 23 onwards of the doc Jim linked to.

The Vision tack line ties off somewhere around the base of the mast. Because we always had tons of issues with poles not running smoothly I tied them off at the toe strap fixing on the port side so you could pull the pole in manually if it decided to not play ball.
