Paul is repairing a Cabrinha leading edge that blew out. We first reinforce the edges and sew the margin of the reinforcement before closing the leading edge. We removed and replaced the white factory strip because when the LE blew it ripped through much of it. Katy is repairing a Best Waroo that has a reasonably simple but large rip in the sail.
