Re: How do you fold sails on deck?

A main would not be that hard with a loose footed sail, Flake in on the boom, tie sail ties around it, take off the tack clew, slugs etc, off into a bag! also need to take out the battens......

One can flake jibs as mentioned, all pretty easy once you get used to it, and do it a few times, usually screwed up the first few times. but gets easier ea time. 2-3 people do make it easier to flake on deck. Then use sail ties, into a sausage bag, or roll up into a what I will call the normal sail bag!

I drives me dinghy!
