4-5 The turn should be slow and steady. This last element is the most important. The rate of turn and the timing of the jibe are critical to a good Sambuca. The trimmers can be a bit off on their timing, but the kite must be appearing around the starboard side of the headstay before the boat jibes, otherwise it could backwind on the new windward side after the turn and potentially blow through the forestay triangle.The jib will be dropped immediately after the jibe, and with the sheet still tight it should fall right on center of the deck. If the jib is eased out significantly on the offset leg, it may need to be trimmed back in enough so the battens don¿t catch and tear the spinnaker as it is hoisted and dragged around to the
other side of the boat.
