mainsail choice

Dear Frances 26 and Victoria 800 owners,

my present mainsail has lost its desired shape so I'm planning to order a new one. That's why I'm looking for a mainsail that fits my boat best, which to me means the optimum between cost, durability, ease of handling and particularly the contribution to upwind performance. It appears not to be an easy choice.  And the profusion of information offered by sailmakers seems moreover to be aimed at further confusion.

What fits our boats best? Crosscut or radial, loosefooted or not? Pease tell me your experience.

Kind regards,

Dingeman Boogert
