I take the main halyard, still connected to the head of the sail, and tie it to the boom / folded sail with a sail tie.
When in port the sail tie with the halyard goes over the sail cover. Less hassle than tying to a shroud and you have to untie the sail ties anyway -- 2 birds with one stone (sail tie).
