Re: Help what sail to raise 1st?

I've consistently done the same for 35 years on boats from 420s to 65 fters. Main up first and down last. Keel down as soon as you have water for it and up as late as possible (except up when sailing downwind).

Competitive racing, deliveries, cruising, always the same: main up first and down last.

sail fast and eat well, dave
