||If you enjoy experimenting with
different sail rigs, maybe even some you've thought of yourself, you can
make sails quickly at almost no cost using the plastic from shopping bags.
All it takes is some plastic tape (the
frosted "Magic" tape seems to resist water better) and a few
minutes of patience to get you out on the water with a new sail rig.
This animation show's the order we follow.
We often use soda straws as "mast sleeves" which allow for quick
rig changes while leaving your mast in place.
