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 length 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.
 

Take Control of Your Downwind Sails with a Forespar Whisker Pole

If you need to get downwind and have a conventional non-planing hull, flying a jib, genoa or asymmetrical sail with a whisker pole is the fastest, smoothest and easiest way to get there. Just point her deep downwind, hook up the pole to your mast and head sail sheet, and enjoy a comfortable run towards your destination.

Whisker Poles Virtually Eliminate that Annoying Sail Bounce Noise

Whisker poles are used to "wing out" the jib when sailing downwind. Sailors who have experienced downwind sailing without one can appreciate the value of being able to stabilize the jib, enabling the sail to work more efficiently and without the noise of the sail flopping in the wind and waves.

Forespar* manufactures the finest and most complete line of Whisker Poles in the world.

Benefits of Using a Whisker Pole for Downwind Sailing

•  Provides Stable Sailing On Deep Downwind Angles

•  Adjustable Lengths For Use With Different Types Of Sails
