Spinnaker & Gennaker Poles
When flying downwind sails, it is important to have the right equipment on board to optimise the performance. We will guide you through the options available to have the pole dimensioned correctly and stored on board safely.
It helps to know the terminology of the type of pole you are looking for. The spinnaker pole is to fly the spinnaker, and the whisker pole is to fly the Genoa downwind. The telescopic pole maximises your downwind performance and minimises the stowage. They can all be stored vertically on the mast. The gennaker pole is designed to fly the gennaker/cruising/ asymmetric forward of the bow.
The carbon poles are designed to make light work of sail handling. The big advantage of carbon is its low weight and stiffness. The weight savings enable the crew to handle the sails faster and with less effort.
The economical aluminium poles offer safe and durable handling. Our extensive range is suitable for dinghies and for yachts up to 30 tonnes.
