Hi all
Sorry if this question has been previously covered but .....
To get the correct profile for the main sail the plans suggest that the sail is cut into three and taped back together with a 5mm overlap over one third of the sails width. Is this third nearest the mast or the back of the sail? :shock:
Many Thanks
