Line Control™ Whisker Poles
Forespar's most popular Whisker Pole, the Line Control™ is a telescoping adjustable length whisker pole design. This simple system allows you to quickly and easily extend or retract the pole with the pull of a line.
All length adjustments are made from the mast end of the pole by simply un-cleating the control line, extending or retracting the pole to the proper length, and then re-cleating the line. This eliminates the need to go forward to manually adjust the length, which makes pole deployment much safer.

Whisker Pole Storage
One must consider where you will store a whisker pole on the boat when not in use. Traditionally, poles have been stored on deck in deck chocks.
Why a whisker pole?
Whisker poles are used for non-spinnaker class racing and short-handed cruising, or whenever downwind performance is desired without the use of conventional spinnakers.
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.
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.
