    Hi all. I am a collage student working on a tight budget, but I have been interested in sailing for quite a while. while not having the money or space for a larger (22 foot ) boat that I would like, I do have two heron 9 old town kayaks. I was wondering if anyone here knew a way to diy a mainsail to this type of kayak? I want to go with something more along the lines of this picture

    Hi Guys and Girls,

    I am new to kayak sailing having recently rigged a Balogh system to my Wayland Amazon double folding kayak. Have sailed it once now in bF4/5 locally. That's the East Anglia coast in the UK, where I live. I've been paddling kayaks and canoes, windsurfing and sailing dinghies and crewing the odd cruiser since a teenager. Very glad to have found KSM and hope I'll be able to make some contribution to kayak-sailing in the future. My main interests are day sailing, touring and occasional fishing.

    Hi folks,

    I am quite new to kayak construction, and am building my own. The ending graphical design will be different than the picture, but that the Cape Ann HV.

    www.oneoceankayaks.com/kayakpro/HVtech.htm

    After I've built it, I either want to retrofit it for a sail and outriggers, or sell it so I can buy a Hobie, or something.

    Hi Yakman,
    I'm really happy with it. It blends nicely with the kayaksailor rig
    All the rig is folded and unfolded the same way the original one. And the jib adds a lot of power (it's 1.4 sqm). Next step will be to test it with my full setup (adding mizzen and genoa).....It´s so funny

    I am really enjoying the tent. It weights in at less the 4lbs and easily fits into the bulkheads of my kayaks in a dry bag.

    well I decided on getting an outback. I just don't have the funds yet for a Tandem Island. But if you have a tandem and want some company I am down for that. I would love to ride along!

    I'm José Miguel from the Canary Islands.
    I bought a kayak to get to new fishing spots. I though some sails would help me.....but sails are addictive, and now I enjoy sailing more than fishing. To improve the efficency, power and control of my sails has became my actual target.
    Hope to help others and be helped as well!!!

    Hey Al, I haven't forgot about you. The Falcon sail isn't as good as I thought it would be. I am actually selling my Jackson, I am looking to get a tandem island. Once I get it then I will be ready to go!

    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!

    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.
