Re: Boom rise with reefing... How much?
My attitude is this :
When you reef, you lower the centre of effort of the sail, a lot. Therefore, it's OK to allow it to rise again just a little bit by having the boom higher. It's less likely to hit you on the head, to catch in the water, everyone's a winner!
