Sailkote is a race-proven high-performance non-oily dry lubricant that works great for use on sail tracks, battens, sliding doors, fishing reels, and well...really anything that moves you'll want to spritz on some Sailkote.
You can use Sailkote on your sails, especially spinnakers, to repel dirt and water, minimizing absorption and friction for easier hoisting and retrieving. As a hull coating, Sailkote reduces drag, minimizes underwater growth adhesion and repels dirt, grime, and oil deposits. It can be easily applied by spraying or wiping onto sails, hulls and hardware, Sailkote dries within seconds and requires no preparation prior to application.
Lasts up to 10 times longer than Teflon additives, oil, or wax based lubes.
Used successfully in every Americas Cup since 1977 and currently supplied to the US Sailing Team.
Available in 6oz. and 16oz. aerosol spray cans, one quart non-aerosol bottle, and one gallon non-aerosol container.

- very good product for spinnakers especially...don't get it on the floor it is crazy slick. Review by DaneilJCPA
I use this on my U20 spinnaker. I have painted graphics on it using tee shirt paint and the paint remains sort of sticky even after it dries (it is sort of rubbery). I coated the painted areas and when it dried the painted surface was as slick as a new sail.
Note: It does have some sort of solvent that dissolves the paint so care and testing are necessary for this unique purpose.
On the rest of the sail it just made it slippery so it gibes easier.
