How to Winterize Sails

That's me again with my questions. So how to winterize sails please help Starting from: - how to uninstall genoa (furling). may be some pictures.. Should I open it first and then down? Or I could down it without opening? - how to uninstall inmast main (have no idea ) - where to store during winter? Is it good idea to store inside the boat? Or I should take it to home? Thanks and regards,

No way to remove a roller furling head sail unless you unfurl it first...unless of course you just disconnect the forestay (kidding). Most roller furling head sails feed into a track on the furling extrusions. Unfurl in clam air and lower.

How and where you stow depends upon your situation. You want sails stowed in a dry, pest and rodent free environment.
