    Oh, yes that is the big debate. I believe the Tashiba is the fastest around the world.

    What are you asking? Is this just an open statement?

    This is a heavy displacement design. The twin pole option is only used in winds over 20 kts. I'm solo and will switch from my symmetrical to the poles when the wind increases that I can not control or drop the symmetrical safely. Best VMG is made at 180 degrees.

    I've been considering the single luff / twin sail but prefer not to change any of the headsails throughout the race. The 2018 GGR winner used fixed spinnaker rings on the mast and did not suffer any damages. All my sail decisions will be reviewed with my sailmaker & rigger. I'm not just winging it here. I've secured a team of about 20 individuals all specialist in their respective fields. I'm a retired proffessional race crew. But not a solo or round the world, yet!

    One the pole cannot be longer than the J, yes, 17.5 No penalty pole. This design is over 1,000 miles faster than all other allowed designs. 3.5 longer waterline over the course

    I'm looking to sail dead-downwind, I need the option for both to be poled out.

    The outer sail is multi-purpose but the clew is quite high because it is on a rising spirit. The outer sail 140% will be rolled to about 100%. The staysail is higher clewed.

    Single-handed sailing on this size boat usually only carries the symmetrical to about 150-170 up to 20 kts. Higher winds is when you go wing n wing. My boat is the Tashiba 36 20,350 displacement, 42% ballast ratio.

    Both Aluminum & non-adjustable. Correct, I am an entrant in the 2022 GGR. Bought my boat. It is a cutter rig, so... when sailing a Symmetrical Spinnaker I need a long pole. The Staysail (cutter), to be poled out should be a pole set to that length. That's why I'm asking the question. Also, I need the 2 poles for my jury rig. See the problem. I do not believe there are any (stupid) questions. So, I'm asking to see if someone out there has come across the same problem.
