Looking for a main and jib in decent shape for my new SX. Ready to buy so please hit me up if you have SX sails you might want to offload.
Cheers,
Phil

Seems 18SX used sails are few and far between. The original Mylars are pretty much trash so I guess most folks are on their 2nd gen sails and holding onto them!
After a lot of research, and recognizing I would not be class legal, Chip at Whirlwind is putting finishing touches on a new set today. Not a cheap proposition but I picked up the rest of boat for a good deal so justifiable (in my mind anyway!).
Thanks for those who contacted me.
Phil

I was in the same dilemma as you with my 18SX - needed new sails but was starting to enjoy class racing. I converted my boat to a standard 18, but kept the SX rig. You may race in Open Class, but Hobie events don't have much competition there. There is also Portsmouth racing.
