Ah well, that depends on the local field mouse population...


And the female crew who won't then hoist it for fear of upsetting the nest.

when i really cant be arsed i leave it screwed up and you can see the creases when you pull it out the bag the next week

But when i do fold it nicely it comes out the bag looking almost new 

in the really light stuff you can see the creases as you launch it if you haven't folded it, this surely cant be quick

I knew a family in Darwin with a Farr38 and a small, smelly, narcoleptic, partially sighted dog.
Whilst racing the son had hastily re-bagged the kite down below for the next hoist, no-one noticed the absence of the dog until the kite was hoisted straight out the bag, lucky no crocks in the harbour that day.

I've always stuffed it in the bag after sailing, then take it home, dry it, then fold it and pack it into the bag.
