skipper should bear done and then furl, while they are keeping tension on the sheet.. If you have a backstay put the backstay on max will allow the forestay to tighten and furl nicely.
That was a bit of nasty flog on that jib. The skip was pretty laid back though.
I assume this is the point (45 knots) you go to storm sails and start running (in open water of course)?
