Here's what other sites are saying:
The WindPaddle Cruiser Sail shares all the lightweight, easy-to-use features of the WindPaddle Adventure Sail but cranks the power up a few notches to accommodate heavier boats. The large, powerful Cruiser is great for canoes and tandem kayaks. A stiff, expedition-grade perimeter batten provides durability and dependability in even the harshest conditions. Sails up to 180 degree off the wind. Suitable for 5-30 knot winds. Easy-to-use clips make rigging the Cruiser 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. A continuous sheet (or steering line) 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.

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 unique circular design of the sail keeps the center of effort low for stability. It can easily be angled to the wind to reduce power. There are no holes to be drilled, simply attach to 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 Cruiser flattens against the deck, de-powering instantly. It is made from 'spinnaker' sailcloth, a low-stretch fabric that will not absorb water and become

All WindPaddle sails launch and fly from the on-deck or in-boat position. They can be set-up for instant self-launching either before sailing or while out on the water.water, so there's no need to return to shore to launch sail!
