Urgently need a replacement L440 main sail

Hi fellow L400 people. Only 6 hours in to our Atlantic crossing from La Palma in the canary Islands and sailing comfortably dead down wind under 2 reefs in about 28 kts of wind, the top of our main sail tore out, tearing a straight line from the mast to the back of the roach about 2.) M from the top. We motored back to la Palma where we stripped the sail to find bad UV damage I had not previously detected. We have decide the sail should not be repaired. We are now urgently looking for a replacement sail, either near new or used that will get us across the Atlantic. Post added midday 9th Jan 2015 pls repy via forum or email at
