Respected Sailing World Spokesperson John Kretschmer Comments on Forespar’s Whisker Poles

“For a cruising couple, the idea of flying a spinnaker day after day on a passage, is unrealistic.  Flat out, you need to be able to pole out a Genoa, which allows you keep sailing fast, even in squally weather, and the Forespar Whisker Pole is the best in the business. On a recent transatlantic, the pole was deployed 15 days during the 17 day passage.  Even with a full crew, we flew the spinnaker three days.  Do the math; the Forespar Whisker Pole is the key to trade wind sailing.”
