Hello Alice, I have built and sailed a Racing Sparrow, :-)) I agree that the sail making section in the book is not good. <:(
 I made single sheet Mylar sails and it sailed very well. ;) Then a mate put me onto an easy way to make panelled sails. O0
I am going to pass on the secret fool proof way of panelled sail making :-)) :-)) :-))
 Sit down and watch and understand the u tube vid called " The Claudio Gadget Explained"
 With very little outlay you should then be well able to produce panelled sails of any size. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))
 Let me know how you get on
