Sail repair - Tape or Sew? w/ pictures

As the pictures show, this sail has about an 8" separation at one of the seams. My original intention was to try and sew it back together, but I don't think that's going to work very well. I bought some Kevlar tape, but I've used sailtape before and didn't hold very well. Anyone got a suggestion?
