Thanks for the quick reply.

The limit I refered to is not a one design rule, its standard sails and equipment limitations for racing under PHRF in the non-spin class.

You are limited to a pole length that is almost useless for a typical 135-155 lp headsail.

To pole out the 140 lp genny on my C36, I'd need around a 22' pole, but per the PHRF rules I am limited to my J dimension of just over 14'.

If you're buying a whisker pole it certainly makes sense to get one that you can extend to a useable length for cruising, but you'll have to mark it for racing, so its visible if its extended beyond "J".

setmefree You can also search craigs list. The simplist way is to go to Google. Then in the search put "whisker pole site:craigslist.org". This will check all cities in craigs list.

jakesokol Jess,

Thank you for getting back to me I actually am interested. I was looking for a 12-20, but may be consider a smaller version. What are you looking to get for it?

regards,
jake

Whisker pole available

Jake,

I have one that came with my used Hunter 27. It is too big for the H27 but would probably work well on your boat.

Contact me if you are interested in discussing it. (Forespar 10-18 telescoping).

Thanks.

jakesokol Quickstep 192 what was your search criteria on EBay, was it simply whisker pole.

Thank you both for responding. I am not tied to any one design rules.

I will try Bacon in Annapolis too.

I am on LI sound, CT shore.

thanks,
jake

PalmettoSailor If you are racing PHRF, I think you are limited to your "J" dimension anyway so telescoping is probably not a requirement.

Quickstep192 I found mine on eBay. I had to check regularly for about a month, but one finally turned up. Don't know where you are, but Bacon in Annapolis is another likely source.

Whisker pole

ANybody know where you can find a telescoping whisker pole for less than a fortune. I have a C&C 34 and I am getting killed on the downwind legs of the Wednesday night club racing.

thank you,
jake
