Reefing the mainsail 1Thu 18 Aug 2011 09:13:19
Lisboa1967 Lisboa1967 Wed 17 Aug 2011 18:27:22 I see from the manta instructions that the mainsail can be reefed but I cant see how on my sail/boom. No cringles in the sail and I cant see how you wrap it around the boom due to the kicking strap. Any ideas!

That is the problem with roller reefing. You need to attach the kicking strap with a claw.
This image is from the website of who seem to sell them.
Luckily for me the previous owner had the good sense of getting sails with reefing cringles, so I use slab reefing.
