It seems straight forward either way but if one wants to put a reef into a mainsail surely it would help to be hove too using the genoa! Is this one of those questions where the answer depends entirely upon the boat set up (roller reefing genoa) and the conditions. I think I would half reef the genoa then hove to I would slab reef the main sail. Now I bet there are hundreds of sailors who disagree with me:-)
