    Default Re: Poled out headsail technique. Extra sheet?

    My continuous sheet is attached with a butterfly knot and cow hitch. I included a Rope Quoit into the cow hitch to attach the whisker pole to.
    I use a downhaul on the end of the pole but never found the need for an uphaul.

    Default Re: Poled out headsail technique. Extra sheet?

    I use a telescopic whisper pole set up to length with the sail furled abd clipped directly onto the clew ring of the sail. Then unfurl the sail on the tack you need. No uphaul, downhaul, extra sheets etc etc. Total control and easy to furl or gybe with the pole still attached. Of course if you have a larger genoa then you need a longer pole and this technique may not work for you. I know someone will be here in aminute telling why this is wrong, but it works for me.
