Sailmaking for dummies


Can someone reccomend a good site on basic sailmaking. I want to make a set of mylar sails but im kind of clueless. How does one know how many panels to make and where does everyone get their mylar? What else should I know?

Thanks a bunch
Alex

Buy "Making Model Yacht Sails" by Larry Robinson.

You can get it here...

http://www.sailsetc.com/miscbooks.htm

and here...

http://www.gbmy.com

The later link seems to be down today - but I suspect that will be temporary.

Useful Idiot
What sort of boat are you making them for. Some classes restrict the panel numbers but 4 are generally used on the main with 3 or 4 on the jib.
Here's a link that you may find useful:
