I have marked the sheet at the point at the cleat to ensure it doesn’t quite reach the bow and have piece of shock cord protruding from the bow .

I or the crew start pulling the spi into the shute before releasing the pole height control .

Crew detaches pole from mast and stows on boom .

Crew or I pull in rest of spi .

I release pole height control and guy detached from pole and pole stowed on boom .

A few inches of spi is round front of jib and that is corrected at a convenient moment up the next beat .

BUT MIKE MAC’S ADVICE AT SHOPEHAM …GO BACK TO BAGS !!!!
