Reefing is meant to increase your ease-of-use, flatten sail shape, reduce sail area, and re-position the boat’s center of effort. This reduces heeling and de-powers your sails to improve safety and stability in rough weather. Reefing is an important part of sailing to learn and understand how to do efficiently and effectively.
Imagine waking up one day stepping onto your boat, casting off and never looking back… that is a dream many aspire to do. From land-locked onlookers, full-time sailors, to weekend sailors all of us wish we could cut the lines and sail wherever the wind takes us.
