Spinnaker Pole Outhaul

A 'Spiro' pole launcher is used, with the pole itself being held alongside the boom by blue 5mm shockcord when not being used. On the side of the mast, just above the gate, is mounted a Ronstan vertical swivel jammer through which the pole outhaul (white 6mm pre-stretch) is led.

The forward end of the pole has a Fico end fitting, with the release line (purple 3mm Spectra) running beneath the pole.
