Re: In Mast Furling

Hi Martin, on my boat, the mainsail - original Incidence Sails, without battens - looks still somewhat ok when un-reefed although the draft has moved back quite a bit so I need a lot of halyard tension to move it to the right place.  But as soon as I reef the sail, the cloth seems to bunch up at the leech and the sail becomes very deep with the draft way back.  Very inefficient upwind.  How does your sail look upwind when reefed?  Do the battens prevent the bunching?
