Re: Reefing a headsail???

Ummmm... yessssss.. 592 ft/2 is more than entire sailplan PLUS the wetted surface of the hull !
So then, the discussion is the manner in which I calculate the jib ....OK; but the OP was about reefing. Does it matter if I wanna reef a 150% genoa or a 145% genoa?. Any way ya slice it, it's still too damm'd big ta suit me... being a novice and all

Tastes great....less filling!
For all intents and porpoises... same-o, same-o. I don't feature being knocked down; whether it's a 150 or a 140. JUst hafta wait and see what the learning curve is... *THEN* get knocked down! LOL

thanx guise
