spinnaker pole set up

HI all,

Well i have just bought a PSC 37 and sailed it up to cairns.(600nm)
I wished to pole the jib out but was unsure as there are no up haul or downhaul lines, which i was previously use to.

So my question is, How is the pole controlled? Do i use another halyard??

Thanks guys

Gavin

Hi Gavin,
Congrats on your new 37, you sailed her to Cairns Australia? Where did your journey begin? Usually a whisker pole is used to pole out a jib or genoa. It is adjustable so you can use it with different headsails. The outboard end snaps on the working jib sheet and you could use a staysail halyard to as a pole topping lift.
Since the spinnaker pole is a fixed length you will have limited control over the shape of the jib.
Hope this helps.

Regards,
Steve

Thanks
It is telescopic, so that explains a bit, and using the staysail halyard makes sense as it leads to cockpit
Cool

I bought the boat in bundaberg, just nth of brisbane.
Thanks steve

I have 3 lines, the halyard, and a control line lead aft, and a control
line lead forward, through a snap block and back to the cockpit. When
properly adjusted, it should be perpendicular to the mast so the pole
only has compression forces. I have a separate halyard because my
mast had a place to attach a block. The lines don't need to be heavy,
the jib sheet is taking most of the stress, I use 3/8" lines on my 31.
