I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

WindPaddle Scout Sail

WindPaddle Scout Sail

Description

Title: WindPaddle Scout Sail

Description:
All WindPaddle sails connect to your existing desk hardware and are made with durability in mind. Made from rip-stop nylon sailcloth. The same material big sailing boat spinnakers are constructed of. The clear window allows for good visibility. Seams are triple-stitched and the perimeter batten is made of a virtually unbreakable composite material. Out in big winds on a large body of rough water is not where you want your equipment to fail. These sails will be pulling hard long after you are ready to head into shore. We stand behind our sails with the statement, "IF you can figure out a way to break it, we'll fix it for free."

Ease of Set-up
The WindPaddle quickly and easily connects to the deck of any boat. The simple to use clips on the mounting harness make this possible. Connect to your boat or switch between boats in seconds!

If your boat has anything that can be clipped to - including deck lines, cleats, bungees, pad eyes, fairleads, thwarts, handholds on the gunwale or bench seat - you can attach your WindPaddle to it

Ease of Use
The WindPaddle sail deploys in a matter of seconds from the on-deck location. A continuous shee allows the paddler to easily control the sail while keeping their paddle in their hands for bracing and steering.

A large window in the center panel of the sail provides needed forward visibility.

Safety
The WindPaddle design puts the center of force of the sail down low, at about the same level as the paddler, making the boat/sail combination incredibly stable and easy-to-use.

Consider answering these FAQs as statements:

Q: If this item is good for an ocean kayak malibu xl two? A: I am not sure it is good or not for your kayak. I do know that you must have sufficient deck rigging directly in front of the cockpit for it to attach and be within reach to the paddler. I have ample deck rigging right in front of the cockpit on my Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145. Hope my info helps you. Happy paddling!

Q: Does this come with ropes?
A: It comes with two clasps to connect to D-rings. There is a long attached line (thin rope) for shifting the sail... steering.

Q: Could this sail be used on a stand-up paddleboard?
A: I saw it in use on SUPs on WindPaddle's website.

Q: Why is this priced so high? Other wind sails on Amazon sell for $100 cheaper. What is different for the extra $100?
A: The quality is better.
