Joining this material - adding tabling

Use 10 mm wide double sided tape, ref TS-10, to make seams to join the panels of 50 micron sails. Use 12 mm wide Mylar tape, ref TM-12 or TTM-12, for the luff reinforcement of mainsails and headsails. Use 18 mm Icarex tape to form a pocket on a headsail luff, ref TP-01, TP-20 & TP-WHITE. And use 4 mm wide Mylar tape, ref TM-04, for leech tapes.

Making battens

Cut battens from the 100 mm x 200 mm SAILSetc thin batten material, ref BM-T. Or buy sets of tapered self adhesive battens suitable for IOM class comprising in total: 20 of 99 mm, 20 of 74 mm & 10 of 49 mm battens. Ref BS-T & BS-M.

Second quality material for practicing

Ends of rolls of this material that have cosmetic faults due to rolling onto card tubes are also available at reduced price. Typical length is 20 to 50 metres. Suitable for practicing or developing your sailmaking techniques, for testing changes to sail shaping, or for the real thing if you are not concerned about perfection.
