That sure makes sense to me. but it brings a question. I had read it needs to match the way cable in the luft/forestay is wound. Are cables wound both ways and does matter at all?The side of the boat where you run the line is irrelevant to whether you furl clockwise or counterclockwise. You choose the direction of the furling by which side of the jib has the sacrificial UV material. The sail has to furl such that that material is on the outside of the furled sail. It is easy to make this mistake. Do not ask me how I know this.
