No matter how beefy your furling system is, it takes a beating every time you roll and unroll your genoa. Inspect all elements of the system including shackles, lines, and fairleads on the deck to make sure every element is in good, working condition, and is properly fastened. You should also give a thorough once-over to every element of your standing rigging, and check all halyards, lines, sheets, and clutches for wear and tear. Harden up on the backstay to keep your rig from bouncing around in heavy weather. If your boat will stay in the water during a storm, be a good neighbor and tie off your halyards to keep them from banging—anyone who lives on their boat nearby will thank you!
