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.
