Re: Sail slide track won't allow quick reefing

Actually, I have a line on the front of the sail just like you describe. It's about 4 feet long, and the first 3 or so slides are attached to it, instead of the sail. However, the line doesn't have enough slack to allow the cringle to reach the hook (not even the first one, let alone the second or third). Maybe if I make the line longer, and capture more slides, it will work. I'll have to take a closer look at that.
