Guiletta Said: "I also use different colour sheets because we have a lot of ropes and makes it easy to identify when racing.
Sometimes we loose the professional look and instead of saying :
quick, release the port sheet, fast, (and get an answer like huuuu which one???)"

I did the same 20 years ago because my wife couldn't tell her Port from her Merlot. I used Red and Blue. Then I realized she was color blind to Blue and Green. (Traffic lights where fun, too.) I finally resorted to Left and Right. Later, she resorted to staying home...hence I became a solo sailor. Now I don't have to shout commands....just talk to myself a lot.

Quick Link

I use a quick link, connected to the center of my sheets. I also have 3/4 " pvc tubing on the forward shrouds above the turnbuckle boots. The pvc spins when the genoa passes across and helps to keep the wear and tear to a minimum.
