Carbon Saddle repair

lately I broke one of my carbon rails of my Specialized S-Works Power saddle. While these don't come very cheap I thought it may be possible to repair the rail and get it on my bike again.
All I know is that I can buy some carbon fibre, resin, brushes, sandpaper and stuff. But I do not really know how to start.
I think I could smoothen the broken surfaces with sand paper, but this would mean I'd take away some length.

Maybe someone can help me to get this done

What's the story behind the damage?

I didn't clamp the saddle enough on my new ultimate seatpost and crashed. The yokes were probably crooked and caused the damage
I come from mountainbike marathon racing and so far carbon saddles tend to last longer :D
