I always rig from new at home cause it's amazing how stiff they are, and you don't want to be rushing it to hit the water. It kinds of makes you wonder how much more stretching is going on after more use, if 3 or 4 times makes such a difference. You do normally end up creasing the luff loads when working up the cams and that's apparently the fastest way to wear the material. I recall Maui sails using a slightly wider sleeve for that reason and it sounds a good idea, although I've not tried one myself.
