Latest News: Forums Racing Fly-away Spinnaker Poles Reply To: Fly-away Spinnaker Poles


Hi Steve,

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…..
