I do it regularly in open water. Having raced offshore in the past I have probably had virtually every problem with a spinnaker and survived, so do not worry about it.
Have you done the one where you do a wineglass.... but wrapped round the forestay?

I’ve done the one where you go up the mast to retrieve the shredded remains of your kite from the forestay. That’s not a lot of fun!

What have you got against dolphins?
Freeloaders, the lot of them - riding our bow waves. Grrrr. Ha ha, no not really. It just seems compulsory to get the cliched shot of dolphins on video. I'd probably do it too, if I had the opportunity.

OK, you're excused! I have sat on the bow of a small yacht on flotilla squeaking at the dolphins playing in our bow wave while my less animalistic mate steered... Magic!

Sail on the Medway, Kent from Chatham Maritime Mar
DJE, you should remember we met at the Scuttlebutt Run in 2018 in Cowes. Your boat is in the foreground and Concerto is opposite with DOM behind. This photo might bring back a few memories of that event that should have gone the Cherbourg but the northerly gales stopped that. On the Sunday I did sail to Cherbourg, so arrived a few days later than planned.
