A helicopter snapped our pic as we began our crossing from Miami to the Berry Islands last January. A nice memory of our last voyage in the south. The west Lake Erie waters won't be quite as clear next summer !

Hi Doug,
How did you rig the 3rd reef in Main Sail ?

Todd,
My jib and main halyards, outhaul and reef lines are all managed at the mast. I have three reef blocks on the side of the boom, which have some adjustability fore - aft, that lead the lines forward to the winch on the boom and then to a cleat.

My main originally had two reef points. I added the third for a deep reef, and I've used it. It's effective.

Hi Doug,
I have all lines leading to cockpit to clutches to winch. Two internal reef lines, would like to rig another, perhaps cheek block external on boom, and lead to cockpit ?

Todd,

Search the forum here, there's lots of great advice regarding sail options and also inner forestays.
