Laminate sails can be a problem since traditional sail repair materials can have a problem sticking to the laminate materials. I think you're going to have to put a big patch over the rip on both sides of the sail, and then sew it in place. It would be better if the patch materials were adhesive backed, as it would make the repair easier to complete and probably a good deal stronger as a final result.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
