Best Answer

a pole is used on symmetrical boats, or a boat that has the spinnaker, or kite, out in front of it. An A-Symmetrical boat puts the spinnaker to the side. A-Symmetrical boats use a bowsprit to hold the sail out in front of the boat, but Symmetricals use a pole. it clips onto the mast of the boat, and the other ends holds the sail.

What is a pole on a sailboat that holds the sails?

on most boats today there is one verticle "pole", the mast. one horizontal "pole" the boom. on older boats like scows and optimists the diagonal pole is called the sprit. there can also be a spinnaker pole which you clip onto the mast to hold out the spinnaker on a run or a reech. on a asymmetric boat the spinnie pole is pulled out when the spinnie is raised, you cann't and shouldn't clip it onto the mast.
