You should be able to furl most modern systems by hand in most conditions. We have about a 560 sq ft headsail on a Schaffer 3100 (slightly larger drum diameter for more leverage).

It's a 41 foot sloop, and we almost always can furl by hand. It got eaven easier when we replaced the deck bullseyes that the furling line runs through, and replaced them with the Shaffer stanchion-mounted roller bearing leads.
