This action shot is from the last heat of the Etchells Midwinters in Moolooaba, Queensland Thanks to Deborah Lloyd Photography! Should we have a little caption contest? What the hell - gear from our friends at SailFast for the best three entries. Have fun!

Confused by the sudden lack of interest by the female competitors to leeward, he took his now crumpled pole and returned to the bow.

It was then that John realized that saving a little money on the discount chinese pole wasn't as good of a deal as he had been led to believe.

When the mark is coming up quickly and you have to get it up, try carbon. For moderate to immediate spinnaker pole disfunction. Those with shallow pockets or certain one design classes should not take carbon as this could lead to an unnecessary rise in blood pressure. If you experience a spinnaker set lasting more than four hours you should contact a race official immediately as this could be a sign of serious leeward mark problems or dangerously low pressure over your shoulder.

That pole was built for jybing around corners.

 

 

Seriously though, if they'd have done that with a Star the rig would have followed.

In order to conserve weight, we went with an inflatable spin pole, which was not without its problems.

Erectile Dysfunction affects the lives of many Etchell sailors and their partners to one degree or another. The term erectile dysfunction covers a range of disorders, but usually refers to the inability to obtain an adequate erection for satisfactory sexual activity...Poor fella
