sail repair

Can anyone tell me how to repair a sail on a sunfish? Sew it on, iron it on...take it somewhere?

Don''t iron your sail! If the tear is very small, you can stick some sail repair tape (adhesive backed Dacron) on both sides of the sail over the tear. If you''re interested in learning about proper sail repair, there are many good books on the subject. However, it may to less expensive and definitely easier to just take the sail to your local sailmaker.
