Having looked at the class rules on spi poles for another thread, it stuck me that the rule on poles is a bit ludicrous.

The rule states that it should be made from wood or metal.

So I can chop down trees from a forest or make a very light pole from the most expensive metals like titanium ect, ???

We have cleats and pulleys made from carbon that go unnoticed yet we have yet to embrace Carbon spi poles with all the advantages.

Yes they maybe about £125.00 but that would be a better price to pay than the above don’t you think ?? Or don’t you??

No, I am not looking at masts and booms,they are at this time not needed in the Wayfarer fleet.
