I ordered a fixed Mast gate / mastgates.com for my C&C 24 and installed it
last week. It was really useful when we had to reef and un-reef during the
2017 Gov Cup race last weekend. We were able to get a better trim on the
main when reefed than before.
Tom and I went back and forth a couple of times and talked on the phone.
We sailed short handed in the 15-20-25kt winds beating south from Annapolis
to St. Mary's during the race. At the tail end of the race we made a few
head sail changes and reef and un-reefed to adjust for conditions.
The little C&C 24 took 3rd in short handed, but could have also been 3rd in
Spin C or N.
It was a good night to have old sails I guess.
