Karen, When you tack, temporary luff for any reason ,or get back winded ( which probably has never happened to you) the sail can and does contact the spreader and over time chafes. If you don't mind, I would like to take some preventative measures. I have a friend with cancer , I will tell him to try salt water ,sweat and tears. Thanks for the tip.

A properly trimmed genoa should not touch a spreader.
