Reaching Spinnaker for Kayaks
Pocket-Sized Airfoil Sail for Downwind & Reaching
Tap into nature’s free energy supply. Make the wind your friend...
Sea kayaks with their easily driven hulls require very little sail area to reach amazing speeds. Easy Rider’s Reaching Spinnaker Sail has just the right sail area for running, reaching, and beating.
Since the sheet (control line) is attached to the kayak deck behind the cockpit in a
“set-and-forget” position, the paddler’s hands are free to take photos, fish, snack... In combination with a leeboard, Easy Rider’s new Reaching Spinnaker Rig is perfect for the minimalist sailor.

“We pointed the bow of our Eskimo 22-6 CRX upwind, and the Reaching Spinnaker Sails caught -- we were sailing into the wind!”

Why so many people choose Easy Rider’s Reaching Spinnaker
The sail, with its leading edge running from tip to base of the mast, functions like a sloop sail allowing you to sail into the wind.
In very strong winds, it can be instantly lowered and stowed under the kayak’s elastic deck tie-downs.
When not in use, the spinnaker stows underneath the kayak’s elastic deck tie-downs and does not restrict paddling.
Likewise, the mast does not restrict paddling when left standing.
Sail and 2-piece fiberglass mast make a slim two-pound package which easily stows inside the cockpit area.
Rigging is quick and easy and can be done while out on the water.
You like to fish? The mast base does double duty: it also accepts
Fishing Rod Holder #2302.

Downwind Spinnaker or Reaching Spinnaker?
Easy Rider offers both rigs. Why not own both! Because the mast and deck hardware of both sails are identical, many customers purchase one complete rig and a second sail as an add-on.

Easy Installation...
Both rigs are available factory installed or in kit form, for easy self-installation on any kayak. The complete kit weighs only two pounds and includes the sail, 2-piece fiberglass mast, mast base, and deck hardware. A drill with 1/4” drill bit is the only tool needed for installation. The removable mast base attaches to the kayak deck with four screws and wing nuts.

When ordering a Spinnaker Sail...
Please specify the deck contour of your kayak in front of the
flat, rounded, or peaked.
