Re: I had a great sail today.
PS Teasing aside, I was wondering if it was a flattening reef. Looks like a little too much sail in the bunt to be a flattening reef, but perhaps only enough to be a shallow reef??
We have a rather large main relative to the sailplan and the reefs are not shallow. The first reef was in, but I guess the bulk of bunt was on the other side of the main.
I didn't need the reef after the first half hour, but was alone, feeling lazy - just enjoyed the day, and played a bit with the new jib.
