Spinnaker Poles

There are four basic ways to handle the spinnaker –

The end for end method, with topping lift a downhaul is most suitable for boats up to 25’. Another end for end method, with the topping lift at the centre of the pole and the downhaul attached to the outhaul end is best for masthead rigged boats up to 33’ and fractionally rigged boats up to 40’. The third method, dip pole is suitable for larger boats. The fourth way, twin pole arrangements is recommended for yachts ranging from 40’ and upwards. Twin poles make it much easier and safer to gybe the spinnaker on a big yacht.
