Where to buy new sails for Mercury 18

Hello All,

My sailing club has two Mercury 15s, keel version (I put Mercury 18 in the title, they are Mercury 15), that the members use for recreational sailing only. We race Ideal 18s.

Here's a reference for this boat. https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/ca...-mercury-15-fk

The main and jib on each boat are pretty blown out, it's hard to get anywhere tacking, so I'd like to make a proposal to buy a new set for each boat.

I'm interested in any suggestions on the best place to buy them. As I said, we don't race these boats so they don't have to be the best sails, but I do want to get quality, well-made sails that will last.

I checked the current builder of the Mercury 15, Cape Cod Shipbuilding, and they list the main for $800 and the jib for $515. http://www.capecodshipbuilding.com/s...fs/mercury.pdf

I know there are other sources for sails, including sources out of China I believe, but not sure which companies are good options.

I'd appreciate any opinions and suggestions on the best places to look.
