PROPER SAIL CARE For more details visit or call 0871 8732404 • Always protect sails from unnecessary exposure to sunlight and heat. • Avoid prolonged luffing and flogging (motor with your sails down, unless the sails can be filled). • Protect from chafe. Make sure spreader patches are located properly. • Use specialized sails in their designed wind range. If you have a question on wind range consult with any Quantum loft. • Never back a genoa against a spreader. • Avoid over-tensioning the halyard (too much tension creates a gutter or trough along the leading edge of the sail). Remember to ease the halyard when the apparent wind velocity drops. • Flake or roll sails (do not stuff) whenever possible for storage. • Store sails dry. • Periodically rinse with fresh water. Annual professional washing is recommended. • Avoid harsh detergents, solvents, and strong chemicals. • Be sure that roller-furling sails are well secured when leaving the boat. Cleat the furling line, take an extra turn of the sheets around the sail, and secure both sheets.
