Two questions: Did you have to modify the ballooner and add a gaiter? Where do you attach it to on the foredeck?

It is also important to make sure that the apparent wind is not less than 90 degrees or more than ~150 degrees to furl correctly.
A couple of times we totally lost all wind and furling could
be done poorly and had to be redone as soon as we got back some wind.
