İ am tryıng to get a genoa booming out pole for my Bruce Roberts 53.

We are in Turkey but soon to be in Greece. İ would lıke a telescopic Forespar from USA but cannot find an organısation that will ship a 4 or 4.5 metre pole. Any ideas please

If DHL and FedEx will not touch it then try a shipping agent. Could you pick it up in Greece? There must be hundreds of shipping agents there who can deliver if you can wait for it to arrive by sea.

Try also contacting Olympic Airlines or any other flying the route.

Hope that works

They make modern telescoping whisker poles in France of good quality.

You'll find the chandleries get better equiped the further west you sail in the Med. I immagine you'd save a bundle by purchasing a pole in Corsica.

Happy sailing,
