Re: Reefing set-up for Contessa

Since you've got such a long reach to the end of the boom a quick fix might be to go to a sailmaker and have a velcro clew strap made.. you could transfer it from clew to clew as needed to hold the clew down on the boom.. that might save you some hardware and result in a cleaner reef.
