describes when an asymmetrical spinnaker’s clew passes forward of its luff during a jibe, and follows an approximately 270-degree arc. Compare to: inside jibe. The deciding factor between doing an inside versus an outside jibe may be the a-sail’s size. On a large boat with an extremely large a-sail, there may not be enough room to execute an inside jibe. An outside jibe is the only option. See also: gybulator.
