Hello, we just bought an i14 today and got the sail kit to go with it. The only thing that really confused us when we were done trying it out is how the sail goes back in its bag. Are there any tricks to it? The bag is long, but not long enough to roll the sail without folding it. Thanks for any suggestions. It's going to be a fun ride!

I know this is too late to be of use to the original poster, but for those that may come after:

Simply fold the sail in half once, along the leading edge. Top to bottom (head to tack, to be precise).

Then roll it up beginning at the leading edge (luff).

This results in one crease in the sail, but it is inline with the airflow, so shouldn't cause any turbulence.

Folding across the airflow lines is generally to be avoided with sails.
