UV Sunshield

For cruising sails, especially those used in sunny climates, a sunshield is a must. This acrylic- or UV-treated polyester fabric is laid along the leech and foot of the sail to protect it when it is rolled up on the headstay. The fabric does not add to the strength of the sail, but it does add to its life by protecting it. If aesthetics are important, your sailmaker can make a sacrificial sunshield from the same fabric as your sail and replace it when the fabric starts to rot. This is a slightly more costly option, but the sails do look nicer.
