Can I paddle anywhere?

BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a licence to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.

Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. See Useful Web sites page.

In other countries, do check with your national kayak organisations and waterway / off-shore agencies etc.

Sail Rigs & Outriggers

"Sail when you can - paddle when you must"

You love sailing, but you don't have the space at home to store a sail boat. The folding sailing kayak is the answer to the storage problem! Also if the wind dies on you, you can still easily paddle home, or if you are tired from all the paddling and the wind is favourable, let the wind do the work for you!

There are two main types of sail rigs listed here - a downwind Symmetrical Sail Rig and upwind Lateen Sail Rigs. Other sail rigs not made by Wayland is listed in Other Accessories

Downwind is when you have the wind directly behind you pushing you along - the downwind sail would be shaped to act like a spinnaker.

Upwind is when the wind is blowing towards you at an angle and the upwind sails are shaped to act like an aircraft wing to pull you along, however you can still sail downwind by swinging the outer edge of the upwind sails further outwards like opening a door to catch the wind from behind.

All wooden framed Waylands come ready made with the top-most fitting to hold a mast however the kayak ideally should have the Decklines with D-rings feature/fitting to provide some anchor points. A floor keel base plate for the mast is supplied with the sail rig.

For extreme sailing with upwind sails, an outrigger rig is recommended.

Symmetrical downwind 1.5 Sail Rig (DFW15)
The easiest type of sail to use and master. You can settle for this downwind sail rig if you only intend to sail part of the time when you take your boat out. Often it is quicker to paddle upwind than to tack with a upwind sail rig! Although the sail rig comes with lee boards, you do not have to use them.

* Spinnaker - 2 sq m synthetic fabric. Default colour = white. Other colours available on request - see colour chart below.
*
Mast - 2 piece, 255cm (floor to top) - spruce

* Lee boards bracket - birch, plywood 8mm

- 6.1kg


NOTE - please let us know which boat the sail rig is mainly intended for so that we may supply the correct type. (EG mast pole for Wayland kayaks is slightly thicker than mast poles for Kleppers)

NOTES
- please let us know which model kayak the sail rig is mainly intended for so that we may supply the correct type. (EG mast pole for Wayland kayaks is slightly thicker than mast poles for Kleppers).
- To make it easier to control the sails, it is recommended that the Accessory Mount Board be ordered together with the sail rig. You can then fit cleats, clam cleats, eyelets, marine compass, etc to this Mount Board.

1.5 Mizzen Sail Rig (DM) - DIS-CONTINUED
A complete sail rig that complements the 4.5 Lateen (Latin) Sail rig. The mast for the mizzen attaches to the frame / rib behind the rear paddler. The kit includes mast, 1.5 sq m triangular sail, blocks, lines, mast fittings, etc.

The Mizzen sail requires a longer rudder - available as a separate purchase.


Note - if you intend to order a sail rig on it's own, please let us know which model kayak the sail sail rig is intended for. This is to ensure the correct fittings for the mast is supplied.



Bridge Outrigger (DAB)
In line with saving space, weight etc, the design incorporates the use of a 2 piece paddle (included) as outrigger booms. The floats are inflatable and is made of the same materials as used for kayak skins - Hypalon hull, Draylon deck, with an internal inflatable PVC balloon. Adjustable stainless steel cables secures the floats directly to the bridge. The wooden 'bridge' complete with cleats and eyelets attaches the outrigger system to the kayak's coaming with hook brackets.

The bridge is versatile - it can be positioned anywhere along the coaming, even with a sea sock / spraydeck on. EG - without the mast, you can create a semi-stable fishing 'platform' by placing the bridge near the rear seat. The bridge has space for a marine compass to be fitted (not supplied). Sail rig lee boards can still be used with the Bridge Outrigger. With the bridge secured near the mast, and the kayak level, both floats are clear out of the water.

* wooden bridge assembly bracket for outrigger booms.
* 2 inflatable floats made with HYPALON - float deck colour can be made to match kayak
* aluminum 2 piece 2.35m paddle - choice of paddle blade colours - black, yellow, red, blue.
* bridge / float fastening stainless steel cables
* span - 2.4m
* carry bag
* weight - +/- 5kg
