Yes you can still reef the old sail, but this means you acn't adjust the controlls as effefectively- to de-power further, so a 4.2 sail works better in that respecct. Also reefing wrecks the crispness of your sail alot faster, so that is another advantage of the 4.2 sail.

However the one sail per event rule is still enforce as usual, so for example at a week long regatta likethe nats, you can't sail with the 4.2 sail in a breeze and the full size sail in heavy airs. But I think this rule is necessary.

The new sails arent THAT expensive (well, for a sail...) The full sail goes for 165 and the wee one is at 125 ( I think.... ) Not cheap, but affordable still...

I'm going for the full sail first, then I'll see if we can pool the family resources to get the 4.2 as a present for our daughter (yeah, she'd like that!)
