Sailcare is a great company to use... they do a fantastic job...at a fairly reasonable price.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

End of season sail wash

We spread our sails out on the grass and fill a bucket with fresh water. Then we add a squirt of dish soap (Dawn, Joy, etc.) and find a SOFT long-handled scrubbrush. We gently scrub one side, rinse with the hose, and then do the other. For drying, it helps to get the sail off the ground. Spinnakers we just put into the bucket, and then rinse.

We do much the same, we use Woolite and soft bristle brushes to clean the Genoa. Rinse thoroughly and hang the sail to dry in a tree. Learned the hard way that if you leave the sail on the ground to dry the birds can't resist it as a target!
