Never was a racer
. Always a cruiser. When I was younger and had a smaller boat I trimmed constantly. My wife called me Popeye the Sailor because I took it so seriously. Now I'm older, the sails are bigger, the wind
is stronger, and I tweak less often. Still, I don't like to let them luff, or stall too much. I tend to reef early. I sail with main and self tacking staysail on a boom when guests are on board so I don't have to keep moving them to trim the Yankee sheets
. My wife still calls me Popeye, but less often.
