The process is quite easy.
Racing Headsail Design
Fareast Sails Racing sails are built with premium cloth from Challenge, Contender and dimension-polyant cloths. Racing Woven Materials provide 10 to 20% less stretch due to the sail cloth and the efficiency of the panel layout. Polyester styles offer up to 50% less stretch than cross cut. Composites such as carbon, aramid, and spring (tape) styles provide the best stretch resistance, and can be made with lite skin or taffeta.
