OK, I'm going to display my ignorance here...

There is a small line laced thru the (jib hank) grommets on the luff of my staysail. It begins about 1/2 - 2/3 up the luff and has a tail extending beyond the tack for 2-3 ft.

I thought it might be a downhaul for reefing but it's length is much higher than the reef points.

What is the purpose of this line and how/when do you use it?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
