Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

I have 1 Main Halyard, 1 Spin, Haylard, 1 Jib haylard. I also have a internal short Haylard? What is it for. Is that for the Wisker pole??

Whisker pole is for the jib when running downwind. Is short internal halyard on the front of the mast? That is the topping lift for the spinnaker/whisker pole.

Thanks for the reply. Yes it is on the front between the spreader and the mast foward light. here is a photo to help you see it. I'm sorry for the quality of the photo. How does this halyard put into play? If I run wing on wing in light air? Is it attached the the vertical traveler and the clue of the sail and kept horizinal? Sory to ask a dumb question. I, still learning all this stuff.
Thanks for your help. Heres the photo.

Mast (should be an eye), topping lift (its not a halyard) and CLEW, not clue. Yes, horizontal.

Is it attached the eye on the vertical track attached to the front on my mast and the clew of the sail and kept horizontal? This system looks like it’s designed to allow you to adjust "horizontally" the Whisker pole on both ends. The mast end with a adjustable track and the Jib end with a topping lift.
Right?

Yes, that is the standard setup for a symetrical spinnaker. With spinnakers the desired tack height varies greatly depending on point of sail etc. Being able to keep the pole level maximizes projected area. Of course it could be used for a whisker pole as well.
