Had a similar tear last year on a batten pocket. Had some Dacron sail tape. I think I ordered it from West Marine. Was planning on replacing the main anyway so put the sail tape on both sides and went out anyway. It's a year later and still haven't replaced the main AND haven't had to retape where the tear is either. Don't know what they use for adhesive on that stuff but it last through wind, rain, snow, fog, accidental jibes, bad sail tack downs, inexperiences crew, birds, hosing down to clean the sail, 2 regattas and this spring we raised the sail at night a showed a movie on it when one of the local houseboaters had a dvd projector. (watched pirates of the caribbean). No one even noticed the tape on the sail.....get some sail tape and keep sailing. You'll probably wear out the rest of the sail before the sail tape comes loose.....
