Just some things to keep in mind: The reef points are only meant to secure bunt of the sail from flogging about when the reef is tucked in. Donít try to shape the sail with the points! The points wonít handle the strain and the sail will become stretched out and possibly tear. Also, if possible, donít make the points around the boom. Make them around the foot of the sail only. If your sail uses a boltrope that slides into the boom track, you wonít be able to avoid this.
