Check which side (if it is labelled) of your sail has UV protection most furlers I have seen run the furling lime down the port side. Either clockwise or counterclockwise..route the furling line to avoid sharp bends. If it doesn't have a cover roll it which ever way you want..

Make it twist the luff wire tighter, but looser.
