Re: wind conditions and reefing

Probably depends on a lot of things. One is what kind of boat are you sailing. If you are spending a lot of time on your ear, you are going slow, reef. If you have guests aboard that don't want a wild ride, reef. If you are going for a BFS ride, shake it out and bury the rail.
