Geoff Champion modifies his reefing horns to help the cringles stay put when slabbing in a reef

Have you ever had your cringle slip off your ramshorn? It can be very painful!
Here are some modifications I’ve made to Mikado II, my S&S 30 moored at Hastings near Melbourne, Australia.


Spring clips were welded to the ramshorn to prevent cringle slippage


A slight alteration to the reefing cringles – stainless steel rings whipped on to webbing which passes through the cringle eyelet


Jiffy reefing with less friction
