Watch in HD for clearer video click the link for part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cq1IqrSrFlc&feature=youtu.be We each have a Bic Kayak Sail and use it on Wilderness Tarpon 140. This day the wind was light to moderate we cruised along at paddling speed sometimes slightly faster when the wind picked up. These sails are super easy to use and great fun. I would recommend them for anyone wanting some fun on the water.

On the downside, it's fiddly to set up, and the long lines go past your legs, so a tangle hazard in the event of a capsize. Not impressed. The Windpaddle is better in so many ways.

i found it easy to set up as i leave the straps on the kayak and just clip it on when i want it. I havent used the Windpaddle, but have seen the videos, looks similar but you need to hold the windpaddle line with your hands. The Bic sail can be used hands free. Bic sail is also much cheaper.

You don't turn into the wind to fill the sail. To have the wind fill the sail in front of you and push you from behind, you need to turn away from the wind.
This kayak sail design can only propel you away from the wind.

Even if you rigged the sail to propel you at right angles to the wind (a beam reach) a kayak would just slide sideways because it doesn't have a deep keel or centre board. Between the sail above the water pushing you sideways and a centre board, below the water, resisting that motion, your boat gets squeezed out, like squeezing a watermelon seed between your finger and thumb. You can't squeeze that seed out without your thumb to counter the force of your finger.

Never used it, but it looks downwind only since the stays don't cover other angles.

As for price, you could probably make one with some fiberglass tent poles and ripstop nylon, so the price of a cheap tent, lol
