Hi Don, Re: the 3rd reef thing. Our sailmaker also advised having 2 reefs then going to trysail, and this was how we set off. However after a couple of gales it became obvious that, for us, it was eaier to take in a third reef in 45 knot winds and huge seas then to get the main down, and rig the trysail. We also sit better with the main than trysail. Since getting the 3rd reef (way up high in the sail number!) we (touch wood) haven't had any more gales, so can't be totally sure on the merits of it sailing-wise.

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!
