I have a question on the CP27 mainsail’s I’m hoping the CP27 veterans can help with. I believe my mainsail is OE (2002) and was made by AirForce. It has one reefing point (no Cunningham). I am guessing that was the standard configuration for CP27’s. Have CP27 owners been happy with the single reef point? Is there any consensus on adding or needing a second reefing point? Cunningham?
Since there is only one reefing point on this sail, is it possible that the design reduces sail more, than if there were two reefing points designed into the sail to begin with, if that makes any sense? So let’s say in a two reef design, the first reef reduces sail by 20% and the second reef reduces another 20%. I am wondering if on a single reef design, say it reduces sail by 30+%, so in adding another reefing point the resulting reduction is not that much.
I think my sail is in pretty good shape for it’s age, so I am considering adding a second reef point. I have several quotes to add the reef point, running from the $150ish to $250ish plus shipping of course.
