spinnaker pole uphaul was created by HannahJ
I was using my spinnaker yesterday going downwind in about a force 3, and the pole was lifting despite a 2:1 elastic downhaul. I was sure this was the usual setup, but it wasn't working! Any ideas?
Thanks

The rope part of the down haul (from the pole end or centre) needs to have a stopper positioned to prevent the pole from skying by hitting the block at the bottom of the mast. Just decide how high the pole should be at it's highest and set it there.

Thanks, it's elastic going through the block at the moment but I'll move the join.

My uphaul is an elastic, which basically just holds the pole up against gravity. While the downhaul is what I use to adjust the height of the pole. Isn't this solution simpler than having both down and uphaul? When the spinnaker is filled it won't ever tend to come down, but will only want to go up, that's why in my mind only the downhaul needs adjusting..
