So much fun!
Have been casually window shopping the past couple of years for a kayak sail to take advantage of the winds when we do our Spring and Fall paddles in Assateague. Have used the sail for one weekend. Great new accessory/toy for my Wilderness Systems Tempest 170! GPS clocked us at 9mph.
    What won me over:
  • Portable. No need to drill holes in you boat, clips onto your deck rigging. The sail clip line is fully adjustable.
  • Lightweight - 13 oz
  • Small - folds down to 15" diameter circle (similar to portable car sun visor).. great for backcountry paddles where space is valuable. Stores neatly under my deck bag.
  • Easy to set up and take down.
  • Low center of gravity. Did not affect the boat stability.
  • Great conversation piece.
    Cons:
  • A bit pricey at $175. Very much this gal's gear-indulgence.
  • Portability - TOO Good! All my paddle buddies wanted to share the fun, too. Easily switched between boats while in route on the water.
All-in-all, very happy with the purchase!
