head = upper side of a sail.
luff = foreside for a sail.
foot = lower side of a sail.
leech = after side of a sail.
biggest width = same as clew cut.
clew cut = a line running from the tack and crossing the leech, this angle must be
90 degrees on the leech.
clew down =the length from this crossingpoint down to the clew
clew up = a length in the leech taken from the crossing(clew cut) up to the clew,
always used on jibs.
peak cut = a line running from the throat and crossing the leech, this angle must be
90 degrees on the leech
peak up = the length in the leech from this crossingpoint up to the peak
panel = one part of sailcloth
= a length measured on one side of a panel which gives when it is transported to
the other side of the same panel a connection line
seam = the connection of two panels
patches = a piece of sailcloth which is sewn on the sail itself
folded edge = the side of a sail folded over for reinforcement
round foot = the rounded shape of the foot of a sail
tabling = the side of a sail which is folded over for reinforcement
broadseam = the connection of two panels of sailcloth with more overlap then a normal
strand = one third of a normal rope
grommet = a ring of rope made of one strand rounded up 3 times itself
webbing = a length of rope platted and sewn on top of the patches
Xpanel = turning panel, a panel in the foot of a sail that has the same gore
as in the ruff calculation as in the through calculation
boltrope = a strong and hard in the strands but "lazy" laid rope where the sail panels are
sail tabling = table with foreside length and after side length of the sail panels and the
gore's for each panel
