Re: new sails
Hi Chris
Your looking at approximately (depends who you go with can vary the final amount by up to a couple hundred dollars) $1700 for a full set.
Irwin, Norths (Brisbane loft), Thomson all make good, fast 125 sails. Your local sailmakers will be able to make fast gear too but yet to be proven.....
If getting from an Interstate maker don't forget to ask for Frieght charge.

estimation of just a new main sail?

Re: new sails
Around $700 ish, allow $400 ish for jib and $600 for kite. Prices do vary between sailmakers but not enough to be the most critical factor. You can't go wrong if you use someone who has sailed 125s as they can also help you with setting up rig to match sails.
