New Sails

I have a Bristol 38.8 and i decided to get new sails (the old ones are really tired 10yo). This is my first cruising boat, but i have been and still am an avid racer with friends (j105 and j109). Obviously i do not plan to race the Bristol, but sail shape and upwind performance are important to me.
After much consideration i narrow down to two options for both main and genoa:

Tri-radial cut with Dimension-Polyant CXI (a polyester laminate with taffeta)
or
Cross-cut with Dimension-polyant Square dacron

Any thought, and any experience with these cloths?
