Re: Boom rise with reefing... How much?

Looks like the right sequence... don't really think it matters whether you do 5 then 6 or vice versa.

The only way your boom can rise as described, really, is that the line from the reef tack to the reef clew is not parallel to the foot of the sail... So it is what it is. If you feel it's 'odd' or wrong or you don't need it, have the new sail made differently.
