Thanks Guys!
Got them from a nice chap on ebay here in the UK.
I just couldn't let them go.
They were separate listings so there was a risk of winning one and not the other and I really wanted the matching set.
So got bidding and won the jib first. I then had to wait another two days for the mainsail listing to end so was concerned that I may not win it, but it turned out there was very little competition probably due to the jib already being sold, but who knows.

So, got to tell you at the risk of gloating, but ended up paying and an unbelievable £41.00 ($69) for the jib and an unbelievable-unbeleivable £27.66 ($45) for the main :o Couldn't believe my luck!

Can't wait to try them out! :D
