He was reefing for practice...not out of necessity... You might want to re-read what Goose wrote...

Looks like you had nice weather, while my weather goddess was dumping another 8 inches of snow and sleet on us over the last four days... UGH....

The Portagee's got a point... might want to have a rigger look at the rig and see if the forestay is too loose or too long... If the mast isn't supposed to be raked that far aft.. it would cause the weather helm you're having...

PS.... Goose...don't strangle the crew... BTW, Happy Birthday...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
