Is there a difference (other than color) between Tanbark sails and the classic white? Looking through the custom quote information it seems the color is only available in certain weights but is there any other difference?

Cheers,

Hi John & Jan:
 
The only real difference between Tanbark and white is the color, assuming that Tanbark is available in the weight that you want.  Tanbark is of great advantage if you stare at your sails all day in order to trim them and get the most out of them.  It is MUCH EASIER ON THE EYES than classic white on a bright sunny day.
