Need Help Rigging a Genoa

I have a 150% Genoa with a 130% reefing point. My question is what do you do or how do you stow the clew and the tack on the sail when you reef? Seems they just flap there without being attached to anything.

Fold the clew up to the new foot line where you should have some cringles and do the same for the tack and then just roll up the foot and secure the roll with your reef pennants or sail ties through the cringles.

Thanks for your response. I've kind of done that but the tack & clew just kind of flop around and don't look very tidy. Since the lower clew is further aft than the reefed upper clew when the sail is reefed it flops around cause there is nothing to tie it to.

I'd fold the tack and clew back over the rest of the "loose" foot and THEN roll it up to the cringles - that would keep them rolled up inside the tied off foot.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
