Alirght - fair enough, my mistake. The fleets I've seen had no reef points and blocks in the middle of the boom - turns out you remove the blocks and rotate the boom... like I said, never sailed 'em and without doing so I guess you'd never know about the roller reefing - dinghies are usually all or nothing, or have different size rigs. I sail a 14' dinghy where the #1 rig is 45' high

Apologies for jumping off a bit but still... reefing in 13? Poor boat won't move!
