If you're racing you certainly don't want a bald-headed sail change, which is what furling the jib first essentially is. We raced once about 120 miles, overnight, and came in second to a Tripp 41 by about 40 seconds. I think it was because we lost about two minutes in a bald-headed headsail change.
