Sails

Sails are the engine of your boat. Proper sail maintenance is easy and takes little time, but it can make a big difference in the life and performance of your sails. A little care can maximize the value of your investment.

  • Use sails in their designed wind range.
  • Avoid or minimize chafe.
  • Protect sails from unnecessary exposure to sunlight and heat.
  • Avoid over-tensioning the halyard.
  • Flake or roll sails (do not stuff) whenever possible for storage.
  • Periodically rinse with fresh water and store sails dry.
