What is the best thread to use?
There are a couple of factors here. Color matching (if you care), cost and the general condition of the spinnaker are the main two.
Anyway, StarUltra is what I would pick but what you are really looking for is UV resistant thread that also resist mold
adsorption. Twaron or Tenara are also good but expensive and their strength is beyond the fabric
Hope that helps.
