Default Sail to mast velcro craddle attachment

My wife has a United Performances "Ultra profile Sail" from the early 90's. This sail has 2 plastic cradles that insert into the edge of the sail and then attach to the mast by velcro. One of the plastic sides that slips into slots on the sail has broken. Can anyone tell me the name of this part or where I can find a replacement?

Thanks

It's a Camber inducer. You can use the sail without it because is very difficult to find any replacement for this kind of camber inducers.
That sails were convertibles cam - cam less.

Just use it without both ones. ( I remember I broke both ones 6 years ago) I start using the sail camless. No big differences considering that sail is no more than 6 mts ( probablly 4,5 to 5 meters).

In any case nonopr has rigth. Better to look for a new ( maybe barely used) Sail. Your wife will be amazed with the differences in weigth and stability. Any decent free ride sail from 2006 up today will be a big difference. Also you can go 1/2 meter bigger because the wheigth and stability.

Good luck

I'm going to let the wife try it without the Cambers in place and if she really thinks we will spend more time using it then replace the Sail. It has sat unused for a number of years while time hasn't. Not getting any younger
