    Folks, can I roll a MK1 sail that's intended to be folded? Its easier to roll than to fold. Will rolling it affect the integrity of the sail?
    Thank you

    Yes, best way to store it. Roll along the leach, keeping the battens straight. I fold mine over at the top batten before rolling it.

    Roll it. Much easier to do than folding. I got a 8" diameter PVC pipe to roll the sail on and cover it with an old J24 sail sock. The new MK II sail has Velcro for batten adjustment. Just loosen them and roll the sail with the battens still in it.
