Tell tales

Charles, the obvious answer is purchase from sail makers (Sailsetc or BG for example).

I however purchased coloured ripstop material in green and pink off ebay/local market which I cut into strips, the only issue with this approach is because of order quantities I can supply all our club members for many years (all for about £10 if my memory serves).

I previously used pieces of cassette recording tape, the only problem with these was when wet they could stick to the sails and as same colour both sides of sail sometimes confusing. (If you crumple the tape slightly less of an issue).

I fit my tell tales same as race numbers, higher on starboard side.

To attach either use small piece of deck patch material or not so good but works pvc electrical insulating tape. (be very careful not to use to big a piece of either)
