Maybe the bow wouldn't sink if you didn't have anything in the front.

what kind of drysuit you recomand?
Jeff Jennings
Jeff Jennings - 6 years ago
We dont actually wear drysuits in Tasmania. Water temperatures are between 10 degrees C and 20 so there is no real need. Usually wear thermals and a windproof/waterproof jacket on top and shorts/bathers below. Sorry cant help.

rather unfair, the " grandmither's bedsheet comment...this is the ocean, a few of these kayaks likely have a max. beam of less than 23", I see no leeboards but likely the bow & stern of these boats are sharp enough to give some lateral plane. I think these guys' whole idea is to keep it simple & have some fun in a loose group event. I'd trade places...my home is mid- continent. very little navigable water.

this is cool. Im just about to put my first kayak rig into sea trials, its good to see some other stayless kayaks. functioning fine with mast positions about where mine is, the trends for the bought ones seems to be stayed and with the mast way out on the foredeck. I think my next sail will be roughly modeled on variations with the one large baton and the upswept boom a la Jeff Jennings. it seems no one is doing this much where im at, its all multisports boats, in th 40s here too so I get the apeal of the minimum windage. im also thinking of sticking the biggest old windsurfer fin I can find under the boat, I installed something to screw into in the keel when building the step, not till I see where lateral resistance point is with a couple of sails though. I could even imagine putting a bolt on bolt off weighted fin keel, could go fast. the other thing that could be pretty nice is a balanced lugsail, but I like the single batton as a halyardless rig. one less string is one less worry. I apreciate the sheet cleat tips too, I had in mind running the sheet through a block like on any normal yacht, or even using a traveller. but the rules dont apply with such tiny sails, I will make up 2 wee jam cleat and hook arangements,

A beautiful film clip! But what about the sail if a roll is needed?

That's why I use an umbrella. Works just as well and if you need too, you just let it go.

Hello Jeff, congratulations for the video and the nice sails that you and your friends have build. May I ask what is the sail material you used? I am thinking to build a sail for my kayak. Thanks!

It's all downwind. Using your grandmothers bedsheet will do fine as well. Where is the actual sailing?

Yes you could and you would probably end upside down as the kayak changed course.

cannot one use the paddle as a center board?
Jeff Jennings
Jeff Jennings - 11 years ago
Hi John, yes we can take out the mast very easily if you capsize. Just release the sheet and reach forward to lift out the mast and sail. We have also practiced rolling back up with the mast and sail in place. This requires a slower, more controlled roll as the extra drag created by the sail requires a sustained paddle action often requiring a reverse support stroke to finish the roll. A hip flick has to be done late because of the slow recovery.

Some of our sails, the tall, narrow ones can sail into the wind but unless you have a centre board, which most dont, you cannot effectively sail into the wind.

Can you sail into the wind on these yaks?

If you look at my web site there are a few details on how we rig these sails.

Wow, I'm fairly new to sea kayaking and these sails look fantastic. How are they rigged to the boat?
Jeff Jennings
Jeff Jennings - 11 years ago
The sails have no effect on the bow of the sea kayak since we have the masts on either side of the cockpit, even with only one sail in front there is no tendency to dip the bow.

Thanks for the comment, we had a great time scooting along, surfing the odd wave. It was windy but there was little swell which made it easier.
