taking care of a tear, even in a highly stressed area near a camber inducer.
What tore?
The luff sleeve.... the luff sleeve from the monofilm.... one of the reinforcements?
Hope this helps,
Hi Roger, the tear is 1cm under the stitching of the lower batten, on the clew extremity of the sail, and about 20cm long. The antichaf strip on the foot of the sail is holding it together.

I'm going to try get it fixed by Aerotech (Sailseast) who are based in Hong Kong. Last time I got an old raf sail fixed by UK Sails but the repair broke not long after. Plus my Ram is much more high tension, so I would rather a specialized company take care of it.
