Re: What sail material are racer/cruisers recommending these days?
The jib disintegrated in one race delaminating in so many places that we ran out of sail tape and almost ran out of duct tape before we were able to round the last windward mark.
We've been using Pentex) .
We had quite a blow here this last weekend and we shredded an older laminate we had (and loved). Didn't think of using duct tape!
Who made your Pentex sails and are you saying you furl your sails? I was under the impression that laminate sails shouldn't be furled but I need to become better acquainted with the Pentex material. We have a furler but haven't used it when racing. Thanks so much for sharing your experience!
