    I am used to mainsails on slugs so dropping them it is just a matter of letting the halyard go and tidy up a bit.

    Now I have a luffrope main. What is the easiest way to bring it down and store it on the boom?

    I will almost always do it by myself.


    Thank you

    If you have crew…always roll the sail and put it below. Start just above the lower numbers.

    By yourself….large flakes as it comes down. Hope it isn’t windy. I would still tie it up and take below.
