Krozet, pay no mind. Flake your sail every time, nice and neat just like you did, and get years of use out of it. Rolling it is even better, but flaking is better than just balled up on the boom.

Also, don't leave it on there w/o a cover, even if it's only a few days. UV will damage it faster than anything else on the water.

Good looking sail.

DAMNIT!!! I left it installed when I came back to Canada this morning. It will be without a cover for about a week till I get back down... I should have went with my instinct and put it back in the sail bag before I left.

Maybe it'll be cloudy for the next week...
