A whisker pole is great, especially for long runs. I've spent days running downwind wing and wing using a whisker pole.
A regulation-length spinnaker pole is really too short to fully pole-out a big genoa, so an extending whisker pole is a good solution. The whisker pole is generally less sturdy than a spin pole so you need to be careful in big winds. On a PSC 37 you can probably manage the weight of an aluminum pole, but the carbon ones are certainly nice (and expensive).
