Hi Sailboats rock - Just a tip - My dad is "Sir"
- Ha, ha. You are freakin' me out and making me feel old - just kidding. call m Ex or Dan.
You are probably folding the sail well. Generally flaking as taking folds of sail from the (foot) and folding it back on itself. If you try to keep the luff (the end with the connectors) lined up with each fold you will eand up with a flaked sail that is quite long.
You lay this on the deck
with the hanks at the forestay end and it helps you hank it on in preparation for hoisting.
Once flaked out flat for storage
you fold the ends to the middle and fold the whole thing over on itself - hard to describe. Any way you want to size all the folds so the sail eventually fits in the bag but I am sure you know that.
OK - I took a few minutes to draw a sketch - please excuse my lack of drawing ability.
