Re: How do you fold sails on deck?

Last time we took down our 135 genoa on the deck, I swore I would just cut it away next time and buy another.

We were on our last sail a few years back and stayed out on anchor. I was possessed to drop the sail after coffee in the morning, with no wind, and motor back. We have to bring it inside the stays to have enough room.

When you do a bad job, like we did above, it just gets worse as you move it around. Ours exploded into a mess that wouldn't fit down the companionway. Find a dock for an hour!!

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
