Furling an unfurlable sail before the next storm comes in – sailing an adventure in Panama

Just before arriving to see Margarida I was hit by several squalls and the furler got jammed in both directions – I could not furl or unfurl the genoa. This video is about what I did to recover the sail. It is not the best solution. Squalls were coming through every hour or so and it was the best thing I could think of at the time. I also discuss what I believe would have been the best solution and also a backup.
