Re: Singlehanding- Flaking the Main

First,
Sounds like you have a luff rope rather than slides on the luff of the main. Either way, drop if fast, flake later. If you have extra hands on board AND you have slides you can drop it part way and flake, put on the aft tie, repeat as you move forward. If you are considering jacks, look at easy jacks - a variation on lazy jacks.
Glad you are enjoying the boat!
