Main sail lug attachment question
I have seen a few main sails with a puzzling lug attachment setup.
The lugs are directly attached to the luff from the head down to the first reef point.
From that point down there is a rope that is woven into the luff and the bottom 3 or 4 cars are attached to this rope.
What is the purpose of this?
