Don't know what type of furler it is but it appears as if there is a luff groove built into the foil. You need to unroll the existing furled sail and let the halyard go loose, then pull the sail down. The luff rope will exit at a wider point on the foil and that is how you remove the existing sail. The new sails rope luff is threaded into this wide spot starting with the head of the sails and the halyard is raised gradually as you feed in more or the luff rope. This presumes that the luff rope on the new sail FITS the existing groove. Otherwise the sail will need to be re-worked with a new luff that does fit the groove.
