I would do nothing! From 20 meters away they are almost invisible and will probably fade with exposure to sunlight. You may damage the sail by rubbing and scrubbing. Just tell people they are well-earned battle scars if anyone asks you.

Since the smudge marks look black and they are in the vicinity of the bridle when the kite is folded up, you might check to see if the bridle gives off any color when it's damp. Just a thought.

Cheers,
Tom
