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!
