colour vs white

There is a school of thought that says that a white sail
(or single colour sail) is cut from the same roll of cloth
at the same time, whereas a coloured sail is cut from
different rolls of different age and potentially different
quality tolerances.
Therefore a white sail is often thought to deform or
stretch more evenly with age, and provide a higher
performance for longer.

This sounds like a good excuse for losing rather than
scientific fact to me!
