SAIL BOAT

I saw a video on FB yesterday of a sail boat zooming across Opeongo.

Re: SAIL BOAT

Did it have a downrigger?

Re: SAIL BOAT

I have a skin-on-frame PakBoat Quest 150 - have wanting to do a circumnavigation of Opeongo for the last couple of years. It's really light (20ish lbs), but seems so cumbersome to portage (I'm very impressed with Uppa tho)

I also got a KayakSailor sail - love it. Weighs about 15lbs, but I've hit a max 15km/h with it and feel like flying. Two lee boards keep it straight with the keel, but you really have to balance it with the body.
