Mainsails normally have two or three reeﬁng positions. We are using the ﬁrst reeﬁng point in these pictures. 1. 2.
3. 4. 5.
Choose the front ﬁrst reeﬁng eye. Lace down the ﬁrst reeﬁng eye to the gooseneck.
Make sure you secure this properly. Go to the back of the boat. Find the ﬁrst reeﬁng eye on the leach.
6. Tie medium size lacing to the ﬁrst reef position, making sure that this will reach the back of the boom and back to the eye a couple of times.
7. Thread the lacing through the end of the boom, then back through the eye and then pull, this will lay the eyelets along the boom. Keeping pressure on the lacing repeat the process.
