So I guess you need to add some pointers on reefing while cave sailing

Reefing was no problem. Changing from the 120 to the working jib was no problem, But having Susan at the helm watching me and the bowsprit disappear underwater every 20 seconds... Now that was a problem. Of course, if you just keep em up, full and by, you do not have that problem do ya If ya had got a bit closer, we could have serviced your zincs.

Sooo... Since my reefing experience is so limited, I think this would be an excellent opportunity for you to discuss how to reef in marginal conditions and an (sorry Susan) inexperienced crew (or no crew!).

Who me? Seat of the pants flying is my specialty here I will say that preparation is the key. All lines rigged and ready, sails on deck. Reef early reef often. Actually, that is an interesting subject. You have been here almost a whole day, I think it is time you started a thread (besides your greeting). Consdering the rig on your boat, and the sail area, I do believe you might have some interesting insight.
