Jockey, Whisker & Spinnaker Poles
Forespar® Spinnaker, Jockey and Whisker Poles cover a range of sizes for racing and cruising boats. Their Line Control™ Whisker Poles are so unique that they have taken out a full patent protection on them.
The lenght of your pole is determined by the yachts "J" measurement. This is the straight line distance from the front of the mast at deck level to the headstay. The "J" measurement is available from your sailplan, sailmaker, rigger and/or designer.
For more information on sizing and installation go to our Catalogues section of our website.
A Little Bit of Downwind Sailing
Sailing downwind is a great way to get to your destination whether racing or cruising. Using a whisker pole to hold your jib or genoa and go wing on wing is the best use of the combination of both the main and foresail.
