Unfurling

Free mainsheet, boom vang, furling line.
Grind on outhaul while slowly easing the furling line

Furling

Free mainsheet, boom vang, outhaul. Keep tight hold on outhaul.
Grind on furling line while keeping good tension on outhaul.


Unfurling and furling best done head to wind, but as you get more experienced can be done in most points of sail if conditions are not too bad. Secret is in the furling. If furled improperly the sail will jam when you next deploy it.
