WindPaddle Adventure Kayak Sail Kit - The Wind Paddle Adventure Kayak Sail Kit allows you to harness the wind and provides a safe, lightweight, efficient and easy-to-use sail for downwind or off-the-wind sailing. It is self-launching, self-standing, and stows either on-deck or below in a small package. With its ability to be quickly launched and taken down while out on the water you have a very easy to use sail for your kayak. The WindPaddle Adventure Sail was designed by sailors and kayak paddlers to be an efficient, safe and lightweight downwind sail. The unique circular design of the sail keeps the center of effort low for stability. It can easily be angled to the wind to reduce its apparent size and power, and can also be held parallel to the water/wind to de-power the sail quickly. There is no deck hardware needed (no holes drilled), simply attach the two clips of the WindHarness mount to the existing deck hardware or perimeter cord. Once deployed, use the WindHarness line kit to fine-tune positioning of the kit. When you're ready to stop, simply let go of the lines, and the Adventurer sail flattens against the deck, de-powering instantly. It is made from 1/2 oz. polyester spinnaker sailcloth, the same material used on racing yachts. This material is low-stretch fabric that will not absorb water and become heavy when wet. Just shake the sail to dry it. The Wind paddle Adventure sail gets its shape using a laminated flexible and non-corroding highly elastic perimeter batten. This batten can be deformed (twisted, bent, etc.) yet will still return to its original circular shape. The batten allows the sail to be coiled into 1/3's for compact storage. From recreational day touring, kayak fishing to expedition sea kayaking, the Windpaddle Adventure Kayak Sail Kit is your sail of choice.
Why work harder than you have to? Harness the power of the wind instead! The lightweight, compact WindPaddle Adventure Sail makes kayak touring faster, easier and more fun. The Adventure is WindPaddle's most popular sail. For 2015 they've upgraded the Adventure for greater performance, better sailing and more power. The stiffer perimeter batten better holds the sail shape and provides increased durability and dependability in even the harshest conditions. The sail is now 25% larger, increased from 42" to 47" in diameter. The shallower sail profile provides better across-the-wind sailing and sail stability. Now with a full 12 square feet of sail area, the Adventure gives you more power and better control. Sails up to 180 degrees off the wind. Suitable for 5-30 knot winds. Easy-to-use clips make rigging the Adventure quick and simple. Can be clipped to just about anything, including deck lines, cleats, bungees, pad eyes, fairleads, thwarts, gunwale handholds or a bench seat. Deploys in a matter of seconds. The WindPaddle design keeps the sail's center of force low, making the boat/sail combination stable and easy to handle. A clear window in the center lets you see where you're going. The softer continuous sheet (or steering line) is easier on your hands and allows the paddler to control the sail while holding their paddle for bracing and steering. Coils flat so it's easy to stow in your canoe or under your kayak's rigging. Super lightweight, so it won't weigh down your boat when stowed.
The WindPaddle Adventure has always been the go-to sail for high winds, expeditions and demanding large water or off-shore conditions. Responding to the desire of paddlers for an even better performing sail, we've upgraded the Adventure for better sailing and more power. All WindPaddle sails launch and fly from the on-deck position. It can be set up for instant self-launching either before sailing or while out on the water so there's no need to return to shore to launch your sail!
