Re: Is the sail rig worth
Posted by CLC on Feb 18, 2005
The CLC SailRig DOES go to windward. Not to keep with a 12-meter, mind you, but at least as well as a Hobie 14, for better or worse. Ultralight multihulls are never going to be windward machines but you can still do five knots tacking through 100 degrees or so. (A 12-meter will tack through 80 degrees.)
Off the wind the CLC Sailrig-equipped kayak will scream. 2X paddling speeds are routine.
