If bias loading, fill and warp, yarn denier, luff curve, tack cutback, UV degradation, and draft position aren’t familiar terms, this is a good time to tune up your sail knowledge. In this workshop, we’ll stretch out and inspect sails to learn technical features of sailcloth, sail design and construction. Then develop this into practical knowledge for the competent cruiser: better sail trim, make sails last longer, DIY sail inspection, and sail repair.
