It's your fault really.
The newer sails, they are making now have elastic ties bettween the slides and the sails..
IT'S MEANT TO BE LIKE THAT!!!
It's to avoid stressing the sail when you reef...your mistake was that you should have secured the main clew better, so they would not be stressing out the elastics..the clew was probably too lose and allowed the elastics to strtch too far.
Now...the system is not one of my favorite systems, but as you can see, its better to break a few elastics than to damange the sail..
learn how to reef with that sail...they wil not fix it for you.
But my best recommnedation to you...Replace the elastics, with a few dyneem lines
