The FORESPAR Heavy Duty Twistlock Telescoping Whisker Pole makes downwind sailing easy and comfortable for all involved. The pole allows the genoa, jib or even drifter jib to be extended out opposite the mainsail adding much more sail area and vastly increasing downwind speed and angle.
The pole can be set up in thirty seconds by attaching one end to the clew of the jib and the other to the mast. The pole is also light enough to be used by any crew setting, trimming and dropping, and collapses to convenient length for stowing. Get there faster, ride smoother, and sail downwind with less effort.
