Parts of the Sailboat: Mainsail
The Mainsail is the boomed sail projecting aft from the mainmast. That is, the large sail located behind the main mast of a vessel.
The modern Bermuda rig uses a triangular mainsail as the only sail aft (towards the rear) of the mast, closely coordinated with a jib for sailing upwind. In downwind conditions (with the wind behind the boat) a spinnaker replaces the jib.
Cleaning your mainsail
A good side product of shipping your boat via truck is that you have the chance to service and clean everything when you start putting everything back together. Yeah, some weekends have been more fun than others.
As we get close to the finish line with bigger long-term projects remaining, we decided that we needed to get out there for a quick sail to remind ourselves why we are doing this. So we decided to prep the main on Saturday so that we could go sailing on Sunday.
Taking advantage of a very sunny winter day in California, we spread the main on the lawn by the marina and washed it. We used a very mild solution of water and a bit of shampoo and armed with a sponge we scrubbed both sides.
Turns out the previous owner had left it folded on the boom for quite some time. We were unable to really get rid of of the moldy spots but we did get rid of some dirt. Mind you we used as little water as possible and got rid of the suds by soaking them up with a sponge. The whole thing took 2 hours and some major arm muscle. Then we took back it back up on the boat and rinsed it half-raised up. Choose a sunny and windless day for this.
We still ask ourselves if it was really worth the effort but we decided that worse case scenario we now know every inch of our main.
Some suggest using oxalic to really clean the sail. We were not keen onusing anything too aggressive and decided for this first time to go gentle. In any case, we think that sailing under the California sun will take care of most stains.
How do you take care of your mainsail when it’s been sitting folded for a while?
