Airfoil Sail Rigs for Kayaks
Sailing Outrigger/Catamaran Style
Polynesians have been using them for over
2000 years. Without outriggers to stabilize their narrow dugouts,
they would have never mastered the swollen waters of the ocean, never
spread through the islands of the South Pacific...
An outrigger transforms any paddlecraft into
a stable, almost untippable platform. A platform which provides immeasurable
security when crossings take you miles from shore, qualls surprise
you out in open water, or rip tides froth at your boat. A platform
from which you can fish, swim, snorkel, sunbathe... A
platform to which you can attach our high-performance airfoil sails.
Why so many people choose Easy
Riders sailing options...
More and more people would like to sail, but are discouraged by the
high cost and burden of owning a regular sailboat... The solution:
Easy Riders sailing options!
Our sailing kayaks dont require much sail area to reach speeds
rivaling regular sailboats. They are seaworthy, sporty, easily controlled,
and loads of fun. Furthermore, these boats can be easily cartopped
and can be hand-carried down to the water -- no boat trailer nor boat-launch
Seasoned sailors are surprised that our sailing craft respond to the
slightest puff of air, and they marvel at the efficiency of our fully-battened,
high-aspect ratio airfoil sails.
