Re: How do you fold sails on deck?

You're probably doing the best job possible under the circumstances. While we can neatly flake and bag sail on the dock, the foredeck is another matter. Consider buying a sausage sailbag like the racers have, it zips along the top. Flake the sail into the bag, zip, and secure the bag to the lifelines. Stuffing a sail into a standard bag without proper flaking and folding makes a mess of a sail, as you know.
