New Sails needed

Having sailed from Sydney to NZ, it is clear that both main and jib need replacing. Shape of both sails is very poor.
Main has lazy jacks, jib is furling.
I will be coastal sailing but would appreciate a sail that performs well.
I have a Wingaker that performs well in light air, bought from Lothar Weber who was very helpful.
Thanks in advance

Re: New Sails needed

I'm sure that there's plenty of great sailmakers in Unzed, depending on which port you are in. Ask the local yachties.
I'd go for a good locally stitched product that can be altered if you aren't happy, rather than one orderd and made in China or Thailand.
