The mast track can easily be damaged when lowering the mast and sometimes in the process of raising the mainsail.
The white PVC track is made by a New Zealand company, C-Tech, who will supply it in 3m lengths but there is a similar product, Flex-A-Rail, that you can often find in awning manufacturers/suppliers.
C-tech recommended that damaged track be replaced in lengths no shorter than 30cm (1ft) as smaller lengths are susceptible to being knocked off.
They also recommend using a Methacrylic Adhesive which is designed to stick even when the surfaces flex. This includes Plexus MA310, 3M 5200 (used by Weta Marine) and West Systems G/Flex.
There are some instructions here
