The RapidUp™ Sail is a compact, portable, and easy to set up down-wind sail that rapidly deploys and quickly stows flat on the deck of your kayak. The unique shape of this sail is specially designed to conform to kayak decks and uses a built in non-corroding “spring” frame that gives the RapidUp™ the ability to “spring” open. Made of high quality, durable rip-stop sail cloth; this sail has adjustable attachments, quick connecting lanyards, D-rings, and a carabiner for easy attachment to multiple deck configurations. Includes: Storage Bag, Instruction Manual, 2 Quick Connect Stabilization Lanyards, 1 Quick Connect Dousing Lanyard, 1 Carabiner Base Clip

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.
