R is for Reef.
In Sailing – to Reef is to shorten a sail to maintain better control so that the boat is not overpowered by excessive wind.
|The sail in the fore-ground is reefed. Not well, as there is some pretty flappy fabric but still reefed.|
This was on the Nautos, at Key Lime Sailing, Key Largo.
In Life – to Reef is to shorten a task in order to gain enough time to do the on-line french lesson that the app keeps reminding you it is time for as the cat takes his evening nap on your lap.
|This is a 16 year old cat who won't hesitate to remove your arm if you try to move him.|
Come back tomorrow for a much better post on Sail Bags. Made from real Sails!

I can still remember how to tie a reef knot, does that help in sailing?!ReplyDelete
It sure doesn’t hurt!Delete
enjoy the french. It's a pretty language.ReplyDelete
It really is. Thank heaven the app teaches it as though I were a child!! Oh, excuse, l’enfant!Delete
I have given up on reefing my time this month - I seem to be permanently attached to my laptop these days - I leave it and do something else......then back I go again - commenting everywhere and preparing for the next day and the next AtoZ post - busy, busy, busy (my cat still finds my lap though)ReplyDelete

Love the cat in your picture! I have one on my leg right now as I type this, and she appears in many of my posts (she has been MOST helpful with the A to Z this year!).ReplyDelete
