Angry Torn Sail

We are sailing from Fort Lauderdale to St. Marteen and tore a main sail in high wind. We are currently due east of Key West on the Bahamas side. Does anyone know of a sail repair facility in Cuba or someplace between our location and St. Marteen?

Re: Torn Sail

If you don't want to turn back to Miami or Key West then I would think your best bet is Provo in the Turks and Caicos. A brief Google search did not show anything in Cuba.

Re: Torn Sail

Not specifically. I would contact Caicos Marina and Shipyard and ask them.
