Re: Easing the Mainsheet

Whew, took me a while to figure out how to get that pic posted! Since we are on the subject, Is it possible to rate just how poorly shaped my sail was on Sunday, just based on the pic? We were on a beam reach with light winds (5-12 mph).
The boom vang was loose, outhaul pretty tight, main halyard winched up pretty tight (and then backed off a few inches). The mainsheet was tight, and set in the middle of the traveler.

Also, what is the rope that runs laterally towards the gooseneck from the leech of the sail?
