This is a key! It frees the sail to be furled as cut.easing the sheet and slacking the outhaul
I also release the boom vang, which allows the boom to barely "float" when furling. This action lets boom angle match the sail cut angle and puts minimum sail diameter in the mast. See this post#31 for pictures...
Before learning the vang release. I was forcing the furling of the sail foot into the mast and maximizing the furled sail diameter. If your sail has a 90° cut, then the vang release has little effect.
