Windmill sail

Hi everyone, I'm new with SolidWorks, I switched from AutoCAD 2009 a couple of weeks ago. And right now I'm trying to learn SolidWorks using the tutorials that come with it. I need to sketch a windmill sail so I can then extrude it and make it a 3D drawing. But this sail is a little different than the usual sails we are use to seeing. As you can see in the attachments the sails has a curve on bottom and top. I tried sketching it flat and then trying to bend it using the flex tool, but could not bend it in the direction I want to. Can someone give me some tips or different ways that I might be able to accomplish this. Thank you.
