chrondi, not sure what you mean - wouldn't pointing to windward and easing the sheet produce the same result - a luffing sail? Guess I don't see how you avoid some flapping, since I assume that any significant wind pressure on the main will impede lowering the halyard and increase the likelihood that the battens will jam on the lazyjacks.
