Seawave sailing video

 

kaysailSpring is here, time to sharpen our paddles! While you’re doing that, here’s a Seawave sailing vid with a sail kit (right) from kayaksailor.com. With the lee boards it all looks a bit complicated for me, but perhaps that explains how they manage without a rudder. Notice the hull folding up from 1:40. Don’t know if that’s down to the breakneck speed under sail, or he needs some uprated side chamber PRVs.
For more sail posts, see the IK sailing category somewhere on the right.

    No such thing as “breakneck speed under sail” using kayaksailor combined with the seawave.
    I have one and the max speed was for me around 6-7 km/h (less than 4 knots).
    It is a bit smaller than the one in the video (mine 1.4 m2 – video 1.6 m2), but with the addition of a proper genoa sail.
    It’s nice though to sail against the wind. It’s a nice toy if you are alone but takes a lot of space in case of two passengers.
    And in the case of longer excursions, one must always be careful to avoid capsizing from a sudden breeze. You cannot relax while on sail.
