I once had the same kind of blow out in an unforcasted/unreported blow. After the blow was over I used sail tape and needle and thread to repair the sail and sailed on to my destination. The repairs held until I replaced the sail with a new one about a year later. So, repair it and then order a new sail so you don't miss the spring weather.

brought it to a local sailmaker yesterday. will be done in a week for 80 bucks. the sails are going to be replaces by next year, just hoping to get at least this season out of it. i was thinking of kicking the motor on and puttering in but i figured i rely on that too much, so i tried riding out the blow with the reef and quarter or the jib. my trying to gain experience ended up with that but i guess if you play long enough your going to pay.

A good reason for carrying Sail repair tape along with a sail palm, needles and sail twine.
Thus a stitch in time saves nine...

In my stupidity, I went out on a day like that. I looked up just in time to see my main unzipping itself from the mast. Luckily, my slugs snaped before the sail did. Ih, and my starboard winch snapped off and landed in my lap on the port side stern. Just got a used one on Ebay for $20.

If you've got deep pockets, it can be repaired by a sail loft. Or, if you're cheap like me, Sailrite.com can probably fix you up.

Still . . . what a bummer!
