BTW, if you've practiced reefing, you can get the time it takes to reef down to a few minutes. Pre-marking the halyards, for the reefing point heights helps you drop the main the right amount without having to raise the main much once you've put the reef in.
Dee Caffari was able to drop the main and make every reef on Aviva in just twenty minutes single handed.

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.
