Fiberglass gelcoat? Mild staining - water, a little bleach, and some soap. There's another thread with some great grocery store product recommendations too.

For the sail: take it for a swim in the neighbor's pool and let it soak for a little while. Scrub gently if necessary.

Thanks for the link! I'm going to send it out to our Fleet.

so just some detergent mixed with water should take care of most stains/dirt?

It helps to rinse them off with fresh water after each use, let them dry, then bag them.
