Hey don't knock Brussels just because its afflicted by Eurospeak! We have beer, chips, moules and chocolates (just to mention life's essentials) and I bet you can't name twelve famous Belgiums (That's a standard Trival Pursuit question). Actually its not hot enough to smell bad and it rains so often a lot gets washed away too.
Yes my boat is overwintering in the Port of Brussels (there, you didn't know we had one). See www.bryc.be for the marina.

Then there’s the story of the Kiwi bird. At the first sign if trouble, the Kiwi bird starts flying around in circles. Faster and faster, tighter and tighter. Eventually he flies so fast and tight that he just flies right up his own butt until he disappears!

You could be like the Kiwi bird and let go the sheets and just sail around in circles until the sail rolls itself up or you might try letting go the sheets and taking them to the foredeck and wrapping it up manually. It may not look too pretty but it’ll get the sail out of harm’s way so you get into safe shelter where you can work on the problem.
