I used to have a dragonfly tri with a window in the main and I'd blow
the main out about once every year when it was really cold (around
2-5C or 35-40F).
I've got a survival suit and can sail til mid december before things
start icing up, but by then it's around freezing and with the
windchill probably -10C or colder
(no chortling from our pal in dubai) ;)
Does anybody know if the weta sails are going to get extra wear and
tear at these temperatures?
It dos seem to me that pretty much all the sails I've seen give way on
other boats has always been late fall.
