downwind sail for PSC31

Okapi, thanks for the feedback. What point of sail are you on when you raise the sail, and then when you pull up the sock? Seems like it would be safest to point into the wind but is bearing off hard then with an unfilled headsail? Both Yankee and staysail furl on Hinei'ni so I can quickly head down if need be, but who wants to run forward to raise the sock at that point?

And yes Mark Hinei'ni has an autopilot so I can run forward.
