storing the mainsail on the boom between sails
Submitted by earlball on Thu, 08/04/2022 - 17:26
I am on a lake in Maine and our Flying Scot is moored shortly offshore. What is the best way to store the mainsail between sails? I have been flaking the sail on the boom but that seems awkward. Would rolling the sail be better? Any advice welcome. We are new to the FS world.

I'm on a lake in Maine as well, with my Scot moored just offshore. Where are you located?
To your question: Rolling the sail is best for the sail. You can find older posts here on the forum that describe how to do that. I sail solo all the time and find any way of dealing with the main a chore. I roll it the best I can alone and sail tie it to the boom. Then cover it all with a tent mooring cover. If you have a crew to help it should happen easily.

furling the mainsail
Thanks. This is what I have tried most recently. Easy with two- more of a challenge alone. The tent cover is greart.
