Works beautifully. After brief experimentation with various attach points in set up on my Wilderness Systems Cape Horn 150, went out on bay with 15-17 mph winds. Sail worked very well and stowed on deck easily in its collapsed circular format without need to disconnect any attach points. Great visibility through the three windows.

Start Sailing! This is lots of fun! With just a light breeze the sail will fill, you can use the one center clip, hold the "reins" in one hand and use your paddle off your stern at different angles as a tiller-rudder. Points of sail are way more than having the wind straight behind you. Try this out with plenty of room around you as it can really move you. I suggest you paddle out and sail back to make sure you don't over extend yourself. What makes this tool very light and responsive makes it...I can't say fragile, but it is not rugged. The trick is the "gasket", similar to pop up laundry bags, etc. Just don't blow your gasket.
