JimsCAL I've dealt with NorthSailsDirect and was happy.

Also heard good things about these guys who are a Rolly Tasker dealer.

Omatako Unless the delivery to Chicago is a critical must-have factor, you may also consider vendors like

Hong Kong Sailmakers Get a Quote


Rolly Tasker Sails, International Sailmakers, Cruising Sails, Racing Sails, Mast and Rigging, Sailing Accessories.

Both are competitively priced, have decent reputations for quality and will deliver where ever you need and if it's Turkey then one of these may be less expensive on delivery.

Faster Unlike a main or a headsail where the dimensions are fairly critical for good fit and performance, there's more leeway for fit with spinnakers, esp cruising spinns.

In this case I'd consider an on-line loft like FX sails - they can ship anywhere in the world and generally have about the same delivery time as local sailmakers. Google them and get an estimate.. their prices are very competitive compared to brand name locals.

I want to buy a cruising chute

I want to buy a cruising chute for my 31 feet sailing boat to use for only lightweathers. I want to order it online by creditcard from Turkey and want it to be delivered to an adress in Chicago. Which sailmaker in USA shall I use? Which sail cloth and weight shall I prefer? Anybody can help?
