Re: New sail Dacron characteristics
For how you use your boat, Dacron would not even be on my list of sail cloth. Demension Polyant, or Ullmans CAL sail would. Stretch with these sails will not be an issue!
70% cruising, 30% or less racing? Especially casual, Chesapeake, light-air racing.
Dacron is fine. It's also the limit of my budget. I don't have money for high tech, laminate sails, especially to replace them every 2-5 years.
