Following this with some interest. I’ve thought about using a twin pole system both on the W and on my current boat (er….not a W). Decided against it as the costs do not outweigh the perceived benefits. A well practised crew and the gybing advice as given by Colin is just as good IMHO.
My class allows carbon poles – got a chipstow one that weighs under a kilo and is 8 foot long. Makes life easier…..
