First, you need to get some proper sail thread... Tenara is the best, since it is UV stable.
Ideally, you should herringbone stitch the tear closed, and then put a piece of sailcloth, about the same weight as the sail, over both sides of the tear, and then stitch the patches to the sail as reinforcement.

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.
