Windsport’s Flyaway jib stick system for Shrimper sailors.
Running downwind with the jib goose-winged on a Shrimper is a delight, but getting there or carrying out a gybe with a fixed pole or in a racing situation can be taxing for the crew and a serious challenge singlehanded!
The Windsport flyaway jib pole system offers a solution with a single control line leading to the cockpit that lowers the pole and sheets the jib to the end of the pole all in one go. A little practise and understanding is needed to ensure a smooth operation but the result is a quick and easy way to set and gybe your jib when sailing down wind. A complete or part kit is available from Windsport which you can then rig and attach yourself or alternatively Windsport will fit it for you.
