I believe I'm one of the 75% who won't know the difference. I won't be racing, just cruising, but I want something that points well and can stand up to offshore conditions and the captain's lack of experience, and won't need to be replaced for a long long time. I guess I will recognize a "good sailmaker" by how many questions he asks. Fortunately I don't need this sail in a hurry, I've got other headsails I can make due with until I find what I'm looking for (but that assumes I know what I'm looking for).

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
