Adhesive sail number removal

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’ve recently got new sail numbers, and need to remove old numbers from my C rig. Does anyone have any experience in taking off adhesive sail numbers, and how best to do this. Any advice would be helpful, as I would prefer not to have to buy a new C rig.

Hi Melissa, put the sail on a nice flat surface, warm up gently with a hair dryer (not on hot setting ) and whilst holding the sail cloth with one hand gently peel off the numbers, they will probably tear but warming up the numbers normally softens the adhesive, this normally works for me if they are particularly stubborn then warm from the reverse side to attempt to soften the adhesive.
