      What a great idea. A "dah" moment for me.

      First sail of the year was Monday due to the extreme drought here in Kentucky. The lake has only recently filled to sailing depth. I only mention it so ya'll appreciate your ocean/lake/bay.

      Sail on!

      i usually (ie when i remember) loosen the forestay half hitches BEFORE taking down the gennaker. a 3:1 on the gennaker halyard takes most of the load off the forestay, making the half hitches easier to undo, and safer in the event of a sudden slip.
