3493 twin spinnaker polex
Hi as stated previously I'm fairly new to Merlin sailing but having a blast! Finally started playing with the spinnaker... But seem to be missing something. I can get the spinnaker flying but there seems to be nothing in the rigging to stop the poles flying upwards i. e. To pull down on them. I have the 2 holes on the foredeck... Any advice or pics would be much appreciated. Martin

Some people use the scorpion class style system where the line that ejects the pole also pulls the sheet to the end of the pole, they have a separate downhaul.
great advice all! ... managed to complete a 3 mile run downwind on Lake Windermere last weekend with the kite flying perfectly...what a blast!
that sounds like a great idea....
