Removing a furling head sail is a pretty straightforward job when you know how, WE DIDN'T.
After searching YouTube for advice and a walk through, and finding very little, I put this short video together to help others in a similar position.
It really is simple and only takes around half an hour including folding and packing the sail away!

Corinth Canal, an amazing feat of engineering and a box that required ticking on our bucket list when we began sailing.

Once over the submerging bridge and through the breakwater we were hit with a 3-4 m swell and winds gusting to 40 knots. With 2 hrs to our destination of... Show more

Patrick Laine Very nice film of the canal. Makes me want to visit. However, you later used a technical meteorological term I'm not familiar with, "It's blowin' a hooly." What weather textbook does that come from? 1 month ago

******RESULT*******
Today we began looking for a slip to leave Kejstral in, while away for a few Months down in the Caribbean aboard 'Sea Dreams'. We didn't go far before we found the perfect marina. Port Iasos near Bodrum, is small, quiet and very sheltered, so when they told us the cost we snapped their hand off! For a 12 Month berth and use of their Gulluk site too, we are paying 1,890euro...
