Single Line Reefing Kit

Part #: E1810
Ease reefing the mains'l on your Catalina 25. Great for short handed sailing.

The reef cleat can be mounted on the mast or the line may be led aft to the cockpit with the addition of the related items listed below. The kit includes all required hardware, blocks, line, and mounting screws for your first set of reef points. To tidy up the reefed sail, we even include ties for the middle grommets.
Single line reefing works best with slides installed on the luff. To make your reefing truly "single handed" ask your local sail loft or send your sail to us for installation of "jack line" on the luff of your main. Several slides are attached to the line which extends from the tack to the luff reef grommet. As you reef, the grommet can be snugged right down to the boom without anyone going on deck to remove slides from the mast track.

When you are ready to shake the reef out, just cast off the reef line and haul the halyard until the main is at full hoist. There is no need to re-feed the bolt rope or luff slides.
