Where to set your tell tales on the Laser std sail?

The position for your tell tales is essential for your upwind speed performance. If you put them too close to the mast the air flow is too turbulent. When placed too far back, the tell tales are less sensitive and will probably cause you to pinch. When the tell tales are too high you wont be able to see them and at the same time focus on the coming waves.

The best position is just above and in front of the window. The tell tales are located 40cm (15.75") above the front of the window and 20 cm(7.87") forward of this point.

The correct position for Radial sails is 20cm (7.87") up and 20 (7.87") cm forward the front of the window.

How to affix?

The sail must not be wet or damp.

Clean down the area where the tell tails are to be applied with acetone or use carbon tetrachloride (wear gloves please, use the solvent in a well ventilated area and only use for a short period ) and clean very thoroughly the area. You must remove any grime, dirt, silicones, wax contaminants, and any old glue etc from the surface of the sail.

Warm up the area with a hair dryer on a low setting where the tell tails are going to be applied.

Now pull the backing paper off the tell tail and activate with the hair dryer the backing glue, and then place the tell tail on the sail in the correct position applying good pressure.

Rub down well to ensure good adhesion.


Rooster OD replacement parts are high quality replacements that perform the same function as the original part. They should not be confused with official parts bearing the Laser® registered trademark. They cannot be used if you are sailing at an Association event. However, they are perfect for social sailing, sailing schools, club sailing or training. Generally, there is a significant cost saving when purchasing Rooster OD parts.

Note: The official Laser Standard Mark II sail (bi-radial construction) is manufactured from 4.5oz Dacron cloth.
