My laminated 155% jib has started delaminating at the top, somewhere about 5 feet below the top of the sail on one side only. Total area is about 5-6 square feet of clear sheet detached and slightly flapping in the wind. I am guessing this this section of clear sheet will have to be removed and replaced with some sort of adhesive sail cloth. I've called local North Sails and they advised that they sell some stuff called TEDLAR which can be attached on the shiny/clear layer. Does anyone have any experience with repairing laminated sails and this particular product.

Please note, while I do not race and am not looking for new sails, I'd like to have it fixed and improve my speed and prolong the life of the sail.
