    Circumnavigation of Long Beach Island, NJ May 21 –May 24

    The plan is get out on the high tide from Barnegat Light House and after the sun comes up go out the inlet and head south. Depending on the weather we will do the ocean first or last. If conditions are bad we can stay on the bay side and travel the Inter coastal Waterway "ICW". Plan is to some fishing and find some areas to do some low impact camping, I will probably just sleep on my Tandem...

    Rob, great looking rig, that will get you to and from some good fishing holes. All my sails are on skinny sea kayaks and only have been used for expedition style races. It might be fun to set one up on one of my wider SOTs for going out and just having fun. My Malibu express might need a sail!

    Cheers

    With the Everglades loop being my idea, I better make sure I find a way to join in :P
    For the sake of throwing some dates out there, my suggestion would be to leave Key Largo on Monday, June 13 2016 and return the following Sunday.
    I would plan on sailing a catamaran of SeaWind and Loon canoes from Key Largo up the Gulf to Choko, take them apart, then paddling back via the WW.
    All theory and conjecture at this point so open to any suggestions.

    Here is a video of me installing a Falcon Sail onto my Jackson Big Rig Kayak. I had some challenges to overcome but once I had the sail and the rigging in hand- it all came together.

    I did make some adjustments- The hull was flexing a little so I bought another bracket and inverted it and attached the bottom boom to it. Now it is rock solid. pics attached.

    Howdy- Rob from NJ. New to kayak sailing. I have always had interest in sailing but I bought the sail as a way to assist me into getting to my fishing spots and back. I may find I like sailing a lot more......

    Really excited! Next week I get the Hobie i9 with sail. kayaking is not new for me but the mirage and sail is. I'm looking forward to some helpful tips on using the sail and taking advantage of the wind element.
    What are some speeds you've reached? With the sail how much is your balance effected and, how do you manage that?

    welcome everyone I am expedition sea kayaker, kayak fisherman (sometimes) and expedition kayak sailor. I have been releasing over the last few years that my passion for kayaking and sailing were coming together. We first started this site in 2012 and we used it to gather as much info about kayak sailing as possible. We figured that if we were looking for kayak sailing info, news then other new kayak sailors were looking for the same info. We decided to start building a kayak sailing community where we could post all the information and links in one place. We hope you like KSM.

    I have been sea kayaking for over 25 years I have been everywhere on the easy coast from northern Maine and the Maine Island Trail (MITA) to Key West and Flamingo. I have 2 young kids who are growing up quickly and I hope to start being able to plan some trips with them now.

    Welcome ALL!

    I'm Butch and a expedition sailor in Tampa Florida. I spend a lot of time on the water and enjoying the outdoors with my family and friends. Can't wait to see this forum grow and turn into a true resource for all the Kayak Sailors our there. I have a Hobie Tandem Island that has been highly modified with extra rod holders, solar panel and spinnaker kit. I look forward to sharing more stories and my adventures throughout Florida. Also, I will be posting up product reviews on a regular basis so check back regularly.
