Re: Reefing trouble

So what I am getting out of this is that I have single reef line with a balance block. I only use one line to reef from the cockpit.

One line for reef number 1 which is on the starboard side of the cockpit, and one line for reef number 2 on the port side.

My boom vang holds up the whole boom like the topping lift. I raised it up a little, dropped the mainsail, and pulled reef number 1 from the cockpit. This is where I pulled out the line, where it was not tied properly to the luff. So I then resorted to reef number 2, raised the sail, and all went well.

I really appreciate everyones help. Thank you!
