Look at the sea that’s running just outside this harbour wall – and note how lovely and calm it is inside. This yacht has come outside to hoist her mainsail and right now her crew are wishing they’d slowed down in the flat water and done the job there. It’s even more true when the sail has to be lowered and stowed. Even if things are a bit tight inside, careful planning and good use of available space can often save wrestling with armfuls of canvas when the boat is rolling her rails under. It’s safer too.
