Spinnaker Poles & Equipment Overview

Share |

Forespar® offers a complete and diversified line of spinnaker poles. We manufacture eight complete end styles from which we create a multitude of combinations to fit the needs of all sailors - racers or cruiser.

CUSTOM POLES & KITSlarge-sail-boat-spinnaker-pole.jpg
Forespar® offers "customized" poles built to specific dimensions, and also "kit" poles in which both ends are left loose to allow the marine dealer or yachtsman to finish the pole himself. End fittings and tubing are available separately for those who wish to assemble poles to their own specifications.

 

DETERMINING POLE LENGTH
The length of your spinnaker pole is determined by the yachts "J" measurement. This is roughly the straight line distance from the front of the mast at deck level to the headstay. The "J" measurement is available from your sailplan, or contact Forespar® and we will be able to assist you in determining the proper length. The "kit" lengths that are shown on the following pages are the maximum we recommend for each tubing diameter. However, oversized poles are available.

 

RETRACTABLE BRIDLE OPTION
For custom spinnaker poles 3" in diameter or large only. Featuring internal outboard-end trip lines, and a retractable topping lift, this rigging allows the sailor to smoothly complete a spinnaker jibe without detaching the pole from the mast.
