If you would like, I can email you a copy of the original factory CD with the manual. It has detailed instructions. I'd be happy to show you in person but I suspect I won't be near your marina any time soon ;-)
Let me know what language you prefer as I think I have it in a few different ones and we can save bandwidth by not sending all of them. If it is not copyrighted I may be able to simply put it on my website for anyone to download.
Someone else mentioned a gennaker as a better option. I don't agree with that as gennakers work poorly at the wind angles the twins excel at. Gennakers are more of a reaching sail. Pole end heights are easy enough to adjust and if conditions are really adverse, I'd rather just switch to the genoa.
Most Amel owners report satisfaction with the twin headsails on extended passages.
