Re: Reefing points on the main

Thanks,

Makes sense, there is no way I would put a small windsurfing sail on a much larger mast because of the bend characteristic’s & the effects here would be somewhat exacerbated being a stayed mast

Reefing points on the main

Has anyone tried reefing points on the main to help depowering the rig? Or would this upset the sail balance too much?

Thanks

Full length batten at the jib clew/perpendicular to the luff

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone had a picture or 2 of a jib with a full length batten bisecting the clew & perpendicular to the luff (instead of using a jib boom) & any other tips on batten profiling etc to make it work?

Thanks

Geoff
