Re: Washing sails

Thanks 'M', I was anticipating clear, warm skies and sailing after the rain. An idyllic scenario, I know, but one that I would look forward to alleviating the mold/mildew attack.

Re: Washing sails

I don't think the answer is simple. It's a good idea to rinse off salt water, but rain isn't going to wash much else off a sail. Then the question is how you dry it off before furling or bagging. Putting it away wet might become a mildew farm, if left that way for a lengthy time.

Re: Washing sails

Thanks for the reply. We are newbies and it seemed like a reasonable thing to do but wasn't sure.
Again, thanks.

Washing sails

Just wonderin',
While cruising is it O.K. to leave sails raised while it is raining to wash them off or is it a bad idea???
