Surfing & Windsurfing/Vintage Windsurfer Sail

Question
Greetings,

I have a original windsurfer that I purchased new in 1983.  I need to find a sail in good or excellent condition.  I am willing to buy a complete windsurfer set up and board if necessary if the owner will not sell the sail separately.  I am also willing to have a local sailmaker make a sail matching the original specs using my old sail as a pattern.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Hey Bob,

Do some searching on eBay. Use windsurf, windsurfer, & windsurfing separately for best results. You could add sail after each to weed out other items. There is a good chance you will find an original Windsurfer sail. Also use the same search parameters on Craigslist. Check a variety of cities near you.

Hope this helps.
Keep on sailing,
Windlover
