“Ease the sheets, turn upwind, whatever but don't winch the furling line.”

Actually, I find that turning downwind is much easier - no flogging sail, less 
force on the sheet and you might even shadow your jib with the main. Easy.

Other than that I fully agree with Dennis. A big point: never use a winch to 
furl the sail.
