new sails are basically remove them lay them on your choice of material, and cut to match. reinforce the corners and rehang them on the standing rig. the original paper backed plastic sails are horrible in light wind. short of putting taller sails on it from a bit larger boat new material is best.

personally id love to try a drum winch, or maybe better routing points for the sheets. i switched to a thinner string for my sheets, but there's still some friction on light wind days, or later in the day when the wind dies down in the eavnings.

the nirvana is a great boat, but i sailed a victoria setup for racing. my god i thought i was sailing my USOM!! yes it was that fast, and good. a bit pricey to setup though. i say copy the stock sails in better materiel.
