Re: What sail material are racer/cruisers recommending these days?

When I got new sails for my First 235 back in January, got a great deal in the off season by the way, I went with Mylar/Kevlar for my 135% furling genoa and Dacron for my main. Both were $800 as I bought them at the same time. Reason for a Dacron main was that it would take the flogging a main gets more than a laminate. I will eventually go all laminate but, I need to get my $$ out of these and we are just staring to build the racing program for my boat. I got my sails from Sommerset in NY.

2 cents.
