Re: Sail slide track won't allow quick reefing
Because I have trouble getting the reef cringle on the hook I run a line from the reef cringle to a cleat low on the mast. While it results in the cringle being a few inches higher it completely takes the slides out of the equation. This becomes even more important if you have second or third reef points.
