Re: flying the asymm

Has anyone tried a whisker pole with their asymmetrical to try to make it work deeper downwind (even wing and wing)?

The manual with my Forespar LC10-18 does mention using it with an a-sail but does not go into detail. The greatest problem seems to be removing it in a safe manner. With the jib you can just furl it then remove the pole. With the a-sail I suppose you could pull the sock most of the way down....
