Hi Jill,

Thanks for your details on heaving-to. I wanted to have a third reef point added to my main. The sail loft I deal with suggested I forget the third reef and use the trysail instead. He made what sounded like a good argument. His opinion was that exposing the triple reefed main in high winds was not a good idea as it exposed the most important sail to damage. He felt the trisail was stronger that the main and if it did fail, we would still have the main in tack when the winds subsided.

I choose not to have the main changed with his suggestion. Any thoughts out there?
