My budget does not allow for such extravagance ^^

Paper mache perhaps? or if you're going the cloth route - pin the corners add rice(for the billow effect) and give it a coat of GAC400 (found in art shops or online)

I just bought some ready-made cloth sails, got some pretty cheap from a local hobby shop. More or less in the right scale, at least the square one meant for a Viking ship (Smer?) was a little larger than the sail on the Revel Ship.

They had some other square and triangle sets too. So if I can find them in Finland, I am sure you could in the UK too?
