When to use Whisker Pole


New Member
Thread starter #1
I made a whisker pole last year, and think it speeds up going down wind a lot. Now I'm wondering how far off dead down wind the pole might be a benefit, how I might adjust trim if I should use it turned up, and at what point it's better to take it down and sail the jib on the same side as the main. Advice and observations solicited, please!
