Spin Pole Stowage when racing
I've been having some grief when setting/storing the spin pole during races. Right now when dousing the chute I leave the topping lift and poleguy attached to the pole, disconnect from sail and mast and slide the whole thing back into the cockpit along the CB trunk then forward a bit to keep it out of the skippers feet.
Both of us do not like this arrangement and have talked about mounting it along side the boom similar to other performance dinghies we've sailed.
Before I start drilling holes in my boom does anyone care to share their secrets for pole management?
