I've learned that they don't do double duty as a Spinnaker pole even in very light wind with just the jib.

They fold in half.


So maybe if someone could make a titanium or carbon fiber pole that could do double duty.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
