Re: Easing the Mainsheet

Do you have any close-up photos of the gooseneck and clew areas on the boom? From what I can see, you have a broken lower batten that should be replaced (You will have less draft if it is full length). Your slugs would indicate (hard to really tell in the photo) that you have enough halyard tension. Is your boom “Banded”? Your shape has a lot of draft in it which wouldn’t be very helpful in either very light or windy conditions. The diagonal line to the reef #1 clew makes no since. Take a photo of the end of your boom so we can work out a proper reef set up.
