Re: reefing lines

Thanks to Saildog, I'm going to pursue these on my mainsail. Here is the site: Goiot products

here is the PDF for the grommet/block:
Goiot Quick Reef System

I'm not leading lines aft to cockpit just yet, but this should make it faster/easier to get the main tight to boom. Later, I can explore cockpit reefing.

We've ripped the main reefing in 30kt+ winds 2 of the last 3 races on SF Bay. Of course the sail is 13 yrs old, so time to replace. Also, I'm putting in one reef minimum before we leave the slip from now on. Safer to shake out than put in.
