sandboy is on a distinguished road
Because my pole is already self launching except clipping it to the eye on the front of the mast it alway's stay's on the same side of the boom as far as gybing we end to end much simplier on a small yacht drop pole gybes belong to larger yachts also being a small yacht we only need 1 set of sheets where the one flying the kite is the sheet then when you gybe they swap names when it goes onto the pole it becomes the guy you only need two set when your drop pole gybing not sure what a C20 looks like but she can't be that differant to a Santana 22 end for end your pole its so easy O by the way we no longer race Santana 22 as a class hence I'm not controled by any class restriction's in fact I have extended my mast by 1.5 meter's so I can fly an Etchell kite a lot more exciting than the class restricted one and I race in a mixed division I even have a Asy \reaching kite off a 16ft skiff amazing how quick you can push a 38year old design
