Time to check your Spinnaker Pole ends…..??!!

At a very crucial moment (!) in the second race last weekend, our spinnaker pole end decided to shear off.  That’s not happened to us before.  We have Selden ends.

When I inspected the remaining end I realised that a fair bit of wear can set in.  I’ve replaced both ends now, but you might want to check yours too.
