blt2ski will become famous soon enough
I'll take the sail down, and tie to the deck initially. I then once at the dock, will take the clew and tack and fold onto the dock. This does take three people, two on the dock, and one under the sail on the boat to lift the sail over the lifelines. I do this with my 155 carbon. The 110 Norlam I can take off the boat and usually do it by myself on the dock. Altho some wear does occur while pulling along the dock. My nylon drifter I can do the same way. Spinaker gets stuffed in the sack. and the 140 cruising genoa, so far the same as teh 155 carbon. folded on the dock, then put into a sausage bag.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
