Actually it is time to provide some expert advice on this subject. I
my top ten general rules for putting sails away:
1. When rolling up the wet sail in order to stuff it in the bag, check
see that there are no fishes, turtles, or other creatures contained in
sail -- otherwise it will stink.
2. After a long day of sailing followed by several beers, do not take
leak near your wet sail before rolling it up.
3. If you do drop them off at the dry cleaners, asked that they be
not put on hangers -- they will take up less space that way.
4. If you insist on using abrasive comet cleaner on your sail, it is
to use a wire brush around the seams to get all the dirt out.
5. If your sail is a brand new Retro 9.0 M2, leave it on my lawn to
and remember it will take a year or two to completely dry out so come
6. Do not roll up a wet sail until after changing into dry clothes,
otherwise no one will ask what have you been doing when they look down
7. If you forget and try to roll up your sail around your mast, slap
forehead and say, "Oh, I forgot, I thought this was my old windsurfer
8. If your sail happens to dry out due to warm weather and high winds,
up windsurfing, you obviously should have stayed out sailing.
9. It is best to wrap your lunch sandwiches with a dry sail.
10. IF all else fails and you simply must have a dry sail in the bag,
well kept secret is that Secret underarm anti-perspirant (that chalky
stuff), when wiped all over your sail, will do the trick.
There, I hope this expert advice ends this topic for a while
