What is the point of a traveller?
I am obviously new to sailing. I have asked this question several times and can't seem to get an answer.
When I ask the purpose of a traveller, I am told it is used to depower the main. While I understand that concept, I don't see why Sheeting out the main shee will not accomplish the same thing. Why would someone move the traveller rather than sheet out the main sail?
