Hi all, and particularly Bob! Just catching up after the holiday. Your implication is to go from genoa to jib before reefing the main,particularly if beating. Do you or anyone recommend any particular quick release/connect fittings to enable an easy change-over of sails up front (pins and split rings and ordinary shackles are a bit fiddly (costly when dropped) out on the water).
Secondly (and as a real amateur) I struggle to keep my reefing lines neatly coiled, does anyone use those little pockets or can anyone suggest a good ropework website. Thanks for any answers.
