Cover and peel… or something like that.

Furling a big Asymmetric can involve lots of drama if the wind has built to the stage your at the sails limits. But there is a cure….

deploying the Genoa out over the Asymmetric will de-power it and even in strong winds allow you to furl it away without drama, you won’t even have to bear away.

If you’re wanting to rid yourself of sail altogether then the Genoa is at much less than its maximum wind strength and furling it away is slightly easier.

The same action in reverse can get your Asymmetric deployed with out fuss. I sometimes use this when I’m single handing to allow me to handle the sail deploy in higher winds.
