I had a look at the kayaksailor setup last time I visited Trevor at Yakattack. Very nice indeed if a bit of sailing is what you're after:

Love the umbrella idea though!

I have no incentive to push any particular sail apart from wanting to cut through the crap. I have a lot of experience with kayaks and sailing. Most of my sailing is done around the Banks Peninsular. Any weakness in a boat or sail shows up soon enough in this area of coast. Wild areas with strong tides and unpredictable winds are a death trap for flimsy rigs that can't consistently make good headway into the wind. The FALCON rig - - http://www.falconsails.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - - is simple, light, strong, reasonably priced, easy to use and presents a nice aerodynamic wing to the wind. Kayak sails are becoming much better and the FALCON rig is an excellent choice for serious sailors. All the best - - - Geoff

Hi Geoff Im really interested in this subject and Falcon Sails ,how come this design is stable with out a keel or is the Rudder enough ? With a crosswind is the idea that you adjust the sail angle so that propulsion is always forward from the bow thus not to one side or the other (stable)?
