Has anybody out there got the sizes for a N0. 3 Jib as I’m thinking out gtting an old sail recut to for heavy weather, also on the same topic the position for a 3rd reefing point on the main.
fingers crossed you may know the answer or where to find it.
The dimensions for the working jib and storm jib are in the class rules.
I had a third reef put in my main – I did try it once, not great, but it is better than no sail.
If you still need the dimensions I could measure it when I get a moment. I think I left it to the sailmaker (Jeckells) who put it in to decide where.
Mine only leaves a pocket handkerchief up, and there is a lot of sail flapping about at the bottom – you may need one or two extra reefing points and reinforcement for the third reef to tie up the bundle, or I have fitted lazy jacks which help a bit – very handy for normal cruising, but I suspect that in a real blow it would all get a bit messy. I fitted reefing lines for the first and second reef clews back to the coachroof, but I still need to go to the mast to hook on the tack. It makes life more comfortable with a family crew.
n.b I don’t race, so I’m not as fussy as I might be about sails!
