great stuff guys. just did a 200 km trip solo on the west coast here in the uk, and would never have got round without my kayak sail. they haven't taken off here, but i wouldnt be without it now for day trips or extended paddles. have never managed to get decent on-board footage. will need to bring someone else along one of these days. @salpedi, you dont do these trips without knowing what your skill level will allow. this lot never looked like they were breaking a sweat.

@73mandala: my worst nightmare; I'm off south -west Vic and hope it never happens - they are rarer off our coast.

Great vid, not just you working those conditions, but filming so well in singles. I have a Tasman Twin re-rigged as a double-outrigger with a couple of Balogh sails - it's really a sailing boat now, the cockpits are closed. I sail off south-west Victoria, watching you guys deal with those seas in inspiring.

The two single kayaks were a Sea Leopard, withtwo sails, the other a North sea tourer whith a single sail. Both these kayaks are relatively old models. The Sea Leopard has been redeveloped but is essentially the same while the North sea Tourer has been replaced by a Tasmanian Greenlander kayak and a Canadian built Seaward Chinook. You can see these kayaks on more recent video clips. The North Sea Tourer was 16.5 ft x 22" the Sea Leopard longer and about the same width. Cost A$3000.

Can you tell me the model of your sea kayak? More specifically I am wondering about the length and width and beam size of your kayak......I wish I can go on trips with you guys, that looks like too much fun........ How much money do you think I need for the kayak and sail kit? Thanks

looks fantastic. thinking about doing the same to mine. putting a windsurfing sail onto my SOT. probably going to need a leeboard, outriggers and big rudder. you think a sail that big would work alright on a 10 footer?

18km/hr clocked by a GPS is the fastest, mind you this was with wave assistance. Its all good fun and the sails get bigger and bigger. Wec are off to Flinders again in Feb with a HD video camera, hope the wind is blowing.
