Nauti,

Very nice. Glad you had fun with it.

While the pole may have seemed superfluous in the light air, I think you'll find it useful for maintaining good trim, taming oscillation, and carrying the sail through a larger wind angle (rather than just DDW) as the wind builds.

At least, that's my experience on monohulls.
