An excellet chance to learn sail repair.
Get a strip of cloth from the local sailmaker, a sewing palm, sailmakers needles, waxed thread, a book from the library, and learn. Someday you will need to repair something in a bind, and this is a great chance to learn with no consequences. It's actually kind of fun. And done well, the repair may last years, certainly longer than the rest of the sail.
I wouldn't pay someone to fix it. The sail is long in the tooth. You'll replace it someday. I wouldn't argue against that. That sort of tear suggests weak cloth.
