Non-nylon sails should be folded or rolled...as it is not practical to roll larger sails, they must be folded. The fold lines pretty well drop out when the sail is hoisted, it not like you need to crease the sail to fold it...As you have to do something to put a sail away, folding is preferably to stuffing, from any perspective, with the benefit that a properly folded sail probably takes up 1/4 the storage space that the same sail requires if stuffed...
Certified...in several regards...
