Racing Sails - for sale

I have 3 race sails for my GRP Twister Speedwell that I no longer require, I cruise and these sails are for serious racing. I purchased Speedwell a few months ago and the previous owner of 15 years reported that he had never used these sails. Despite their apparent age they are in very good condition and must have been expensive new. They each have a luff rope and their luff length is such that they run the full length of the forestay, so they cannot be used with a furler. I believe the rig is MkIIa. The luff length of all 3 is approx. 10.2m. Foot lengths: 5.1m, 4.7m, 3.8m. Rather than put a price here, I invite anyone with a serious interest to get in touch.

I measured the sails a couple of months ago and at that time I didn't see a need for photos!
