Re: How do you fold sails on deck?

I read in a sailing magazine a tip somebody recommended for flaking a sail on deck shorthanded. He uses those inexpensive spring clamps, available at hardware stores, to hold the flakes in place as he works one end of the sail and then the other. Never tried it myself--just passing on the info.

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
