Re: Sail slide track won't allow quick reefing
An alternative would be what my sailmaker did on my new sail - the reefing cringles at the luff have a 9 inch webbing strap passing through them, with a metal ring on each end. This 9 inches is sufficient to let the ring reach the horn.
It's a really good, and simple, solution.
