New spinnaker pole for LUCIE

LUCIE carries two spinnaker poles: one for heavy weather and one for light air. During the Helsinki Worlds it turned out that the light air spinnaker pole was made a bit too short (by 44mm / 1 3/4″) due to an incorrect interpretation of the measuring rules. Therefore this winter break has been used to correct this issue and new light air spinnaker pole has been made, now measuring to perfect maximum allowed length – attached are two pictures showing it in raw-stage (the upper of the two) and in finished stage incl. hardware and rigging (again, the upper of the two).
