KCS PRO SAIL SYSTEMS
Our sails are made from the highest quality of material available on the market and are manufactured by Owen Sails in the U.K. – one of the most highly respected sail makers in Europe for their quality. We gave them a rough design of what we required for a kayak sail and they came up with a design different in cut and shape to all others on the market. Since then we have had amazing feedback from customers and experts on the performance of the sails.
Extensive testing was undertaken by the renowned kayak sailing expert Dr. Douglas Wilcox. He was very impressed with the performance in light winds force 2/3 and also in force 5. See his full report here.
All fittings are made from the highest quality available, the mast and boom are carbon fibre, the hatch cover is made of polypropylene covered on the top with carbon effect, an alloy plate is used for the stays and mast base for extra strength. Sails are made from dacron and trilaminate. Sail size 0.75m2, and is of spritsail design with one batten and external boom. Sail has a mast sleeve and downhaul and outhaul eyes for attachment to the boom. Available only in red.
If required we offer a no drilling option on your expensive sea kayak, which can be moved to other kayaks. The watertight hatch cover and takes all the pressure asserted when kayak sailing and our system is designed to spread the forces over a much larger area of your kayak.
Available in 4 options.
