Re: Easing the Mainsheet

Shame you aren't a bit closer, you could come take a look at my C&C27 to see how she's rigged - I've had to re-do quite a bit of it since I got her, I think the PO/broker just dumped lines somewhere to make it look boaty
FYI, with regards to the reefing lines, I've found mine sails fine in 15-20kts with a full main and about a 110% genoa, with the 150 up it's a little too hairy for single-handing, but your MkIII is going to be a little more tender than mine so you might want to get that first reef point rigged if you think you might be out in a breeze like that. You'll also find she sails much better with both sails out, otherwise you will have noticed that you have to keep a lot of pressure on the helm to stop her rounding into wind.
