    Posted: 10 March 2011 at 17:23
Please excuse my ignorance again, but.......................
 
Class rules show no minimum length for a spinnaker pole, yet a maximum of 2500MM.
 
The pole on Demon has seen better days, (and isnt very long) and i would like to replace it, but i wondered how we would define the length of pole we should use? Is there any theory on it?
Any help/advice much appreciated!
 
Cheers
 
Mark

Hi Mark,
 
Generally speaking, the longer the better because it gets the spinnaker further out in front of the boat, however, im not sure if this will be the case with yours or not as you are using a smaller kite.
