Re: i NEED HELP/Training weather?

I have not sailed C&C 30, bit I have sailed lots of C&C 29's.

My rule for reefing: If you ask youself the question "Should I reef?" The answer is "YES". Since you have asked the question, the answer is .....

Put the racing sails in your garage. Put the asym there as well. Bring out the racing sails when you get into racing. Hire an instructor to help you rig fly and douse the asym - there is lots to learn about that sail.

Use the Dacron sails. I gather that you foresail / headsail is a hank-on sail. Hank on the 110 at the dock, put one reef in and lash it down. When you raise you main, put one reef in. It is easier to shake reefs than to put them in.
