New main sail?

Post by Prelude#197 »

The main sail on my prelude has seen better days, I've been contemplating replacing it - does anyone have an idea of the cost of doing this? also where would I go? do I just call up a sail maker like Jeckalls?

I have a feeling this might be cost prohibitive this year so might wait until next or try to find a second hand replacement.

Thanks

Jeckylls made my set of sails about 5 years ago and would still have the pattern. As far as I remember the cost was not too much, I think around £600 for the main and jib. Give them a ring, they are always very helpful. Chris Jeckyll is the man!
