I just got my spi returned from the sailmaker. It had lots of small fissures (usually less than 5 mm) around the first patch only. The sailmaker exempted a sharp edge on the forestay or the snuffer but said, that obviously the helmsman does not turn windward fast enough on the lee gate. He suggested that I should go up again as soon as the 2nd patch lies on the snuffer.
Can you comment on this?
