Re: Sail tape not sticking

Are you trying to 'repair' the luff tape (ie the part that goes into the foil?) We've noticed problems sticking sail tape to any areas with heavy stitching, anywhere that's not really clean and possibly salty, but also the added bulk might cause problems sliding in the foil groove if that's what you're trying to do...
