I mostly sail to teach, so I try to keep my lessons as simple as possible, since those are the easiest lessons to remember:

Always coil up the spaghetti you don't need (halyards) so it doesn't tangle with the spaghetti you do need (sheets).

Is that anal, or dogmatic, or boringly consistent, or whatever?

Yes, probably so. We all have our own style, I encourage students to develop their own style once they've learned the basics. Until then, they can learn my style, or that of whichever other instructor...
