It is important to clean the sail track before you do anything else. Using anything but McLube SailKote is probably a bad idea. While a lot of things, like soap, oils, etc work short-term just fine, as Maine Sail points out, in the long-term they will tend to get gummy and attract dirt and make things worse. This applies to both mainsail tracks on the boom and mast, as well as jib furler hardware.

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.
