Stus-List Second Reef Point on 33 MKII

Hi Lee,

We have a second reef on our 1987 33 km II and use it. We are in the Baie des Chaleurs and sail in the gulf of st-Lawrence area.

It is way more efficient upwind to be properly trimmed than constantly have to dump an overpowered main.

The location of the second reef should be discussed with a sailmaker that knows your area or a fiend that has a similar boat.

If you go forward, use a strong but light line so the weight on the leech is not to bad in light wind.

I have a 33MKII and all my mainsails have a single reef point.
I do have two reefing lines in my boom so I can accommodate a second reef and am thinking of having one installed.

My questions are:

  1.  Do other 33MKII have as second reef?
  2.  Are they beneficial?
  3.  Where on the mainsail is the upper reef?

I race on Lake Michigan and we have had some nasty winds the last two years.
