The Trade Wind is the all-rounder sea kayak sail, and the 1.0m is designed for big doubles, not suitable for single kayaks.
The Trade Wind sail is the signature design based on the simple idea of putting a sail on a sea kayak. Made from a mylar/scrim/mylar tri-laminate, designed to be both tear & UV resistant, with a very cool modern look which also allows you to see through the sail at the approaching conditions.
Flat Earth sails are made out of a new Trilaminate sail cloth, giving amazing shape holding properties, available in a range of colours.
Flat Earth Sails are manufactured in Sydney, designed by the late Mick MacRobb, and meet all of the rigorous quality targets we would expect from a paddling aid that in the right conditions can supercharge your kayak. The video below gives a rundown on the Flat Earth of sails, and Mick's thinking behind the design
There is a fantastic article Rob Mercer wrote about Sea Kayak Sailing & safety, which was published in Britain's Ocean Paddler Magzine HERE. It's worth a read if you're considering getting into kayak sailing..
Douglas Wilcox has written a comprehensive review of the sail on his excellent sea kayaking blog Sea Kayak Photo, which you can read HERE.
Note, all Flat Earth Sails come complete with all fittings & fixtures required to fit your sail. You don't need any extra hardware.
PLEASE NOTE, transporting any of our sails on the roof of a vehicle will void any warranty. Please take it off the kayak and stow it inside your vehicle if you’re transporting.
