Jn18 Repairs

A dinghy sportboat sailing community


Sails wear out. It's a fact of life. You can patch them, repair them, or replace them.

  • Patch
    • Main: You may want some spreader patches for the main depending on how you trim downwind.
    • Jib:
    • Spinnaker: Mostly for accidents launching or dousing the spinnaker. Sail tape does the job.
  • Repair - No advice; in my experience sewing sails back together yourself is not a multi-outingsolution.
