I've been on boats where the mast halyard winch would wrap if you tried to pull fast with more than one wrap.
I found that it would work if you pulled most of the sail up with one turn on the winch then put on one more maybe two if needed when you have to start cranking it up.

So minimum turns on the winch and as late as possible.

Also I like to use McLube on the sail slides and track. It helps a lot.
