You might try asking at some of the local sail lofts. From time to time they do a trade in sale and get lots of really old sails in trade. I know North for one did this a year ago.

Wanted: Old Sails-SF Bay Area
I am working on a marketing project for school. We are developing a line of tote bags for a fictitious company and need to mark out patterns onto a sail to see how many sails can make however many bags.
If you would be willing to donate sails to the cause (my education...) Please let me know. I will happily pick them up!
