Good evening, hope to get hold of some decent 2nd hand sails, or, can anyone recommend a sailmaker with reasonable costs for new?
Thankyou

New Albacore sails are a grand from Mike McNamara but he's the best Alb sail maker as he races in the class.
Try a wanted on the class website as there may be people able to sell secondhand.

How decent do you want them? I have a Rush main that won the Europeans or something similar a few years ago and hasn't seen much service since. It wont win anything major again but at club level it seems ok. I also have the jib but I have never had out of the bag. Call it £80 the pair + P&P sails presently at Lincoln.
If you want New either Sail Register who have served me well for years or Morgan who supplied this years that looks very good
