After an extensive test conducted by Dr. Douglas Wilcox we can now introduce our new KCS – PRO SAIL SYSTEMS. Sail size 0.75m sq., 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. If required we offer a no drilling option on your expensive Sea Kayak, which can be moved to other kayaks. Our sail is made to the highest quality by Owen Sails near Oban one of the most respected Sail Makers in the U.K. Please see the independent and honest test undertaken by Dr. Douglas Wilcox the expert in Kayak Sailing at,
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 for the stays and mast base for extra strength. The Hatch Cover is watertight 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.
