Ease of Use
On its trailer, in the parking lot, the K6 sits low to the ground, making it easy to rig, with no ladders or climbing required. The single line spinnaker halyard & retrieval system together with the spinnaker launcher being forward of the forestay, means that spinnaker launches are easy as a bear-away or gybeset, and douses are equally easy from either gybe, so mark roundings are more tactical, simplifying boat handling considerations at roundings.
