Re: Singlehanding- Flaking the Main

Head up drop the halyard a foot or so go back to cockpit tighten main sheet hard against topping lift. Correct course of boat back to head up ( if you don't have autopilot). Back up to mast take all but half turn off winch. Take line tail back to cockpit stand on cockpit seats flake as you drop from the back. Tie off the bulk of sail in the back. You can straighten out the luff at the dock.
