The luff of my main feeds into the mast via a bolt rope. Dropping the main, especially if singlehanding, is a real kerfluffle. I'd like to add slugs, so when lowered, the luff stays attached to the mast. I race the boat. Will I be sorry that I gave up whatever small performance advantage the bolt rope has over slugs?
Sad to say, FLYING CIRCUS is not covering herself with glory on the race course as it is.
