I lay my sails out flat, grab the top corner (head) and walk back and forth dragging it into neat little 2-3' folds as I go. It takes a lot of walking back and forth, but is the best way singlehanded to fold them. Once I get to the accordian shape with the head stacked on top of the pile, I make two or three lateral folds to shorten them and they go right in the "short style" bag.
With racing sails, I take them right from the boat to the dock, having two helpers fold as the sail is drug off the deck, and then we use a LONG bag to put them into because the less folding you do on those the better.
Of course, that's my way because I short or singlehand so often, but there could be others. The main thing you don't want is wrinkles or creases in it especially if they run top to bottom like this -> |||||||||
