Unzip the stack pack, attach main halyard
to mainsail head
, uncleat the mainsheet, head
into the wind
, raise the mainsail
by pulling down on the halyard
, wrap halyard around mast winch
to get last six feet to top. As mainsail gets to the top, the topping lift
slackens automatically as the boom end rises. Set the main traveler, cleat the mainsheet, turn off the wind
a bit, unfurl jib
and trim, done - you're sailing.
Unless we are racing
, we just leave the stack pack as is.
