I Don't Reef Any More....

I don't reef any less, either!

I'm too old for that. It blows too hard. I drop my main. It blows harder, I go in!

I have a monster main which I can de-power well, up to a point, anyways. The blade is indestructible and I discovered in 30 knots I can point 65deg with it up alone. That's enough to start & retire. Tried reefing my main (incorrectly) on a cruise and tore a grommet. I always said I'll never reef. My tombstone will read,
