Product Description

The Hobie Kayak Sail fits on all Mirage Kayak models. It is the unique combination of the MirageDriveTM and the hand controlled rudder that make it work so well. You steer with your fingertips, control the mainsheet with the other hand and pedal with your feet. The fins of the MirageDrive provide lateral resistance, just like the centerboard of a sailboat. You'll be amazed how just a little effort with the pedals will make your Hobie Kayak perform like a considerably bigger sailboat. With your Kayak Sail, you'll go farther faster! The sail furls nicely around the mast and can be stowed on the deck, on the right. Stretch cords will hold it in place. The sail can be raised and lowered in a matter of seconds on the water. Model Year: 2016, Product ID: 157294, Model Number: 84514001, GTIN: 0792176853978

There is probably about a zero percent chance a hobie kayak will tip over with this sail in any kind of wind you'd want to out in a boat in. If anything, it makes the kayak more stable as it cuts though rougher seas. I have sailed a bunch of small sailboats such as minifish, sunfish, hobie one, laser, etc. This sail is nowhere near as fast or responsive as a regular sailboat sail, but is much better suited to a wide variety of unpredictable wind conditions, especially those of large lakes and ocean, and is infinitely more stable. In a 10mph wind, you will be lucky if you break 2mph without pedaling. This is not a fast sail by any means, but one that adds much mental comfort in adverse conditions, as well as the always appreciated rest of arms and legs.

I use one of these with my Hobie Outback in San Francisco Bay. Like others have said, it will not become your only means of propulsion. It will supplement your peddling and help you go a bit faster. In my experience, if you hit the wind and wave angle just right and there is around 10 knots of breeze, you can sail along without peddling. But that is a rarity. Don't think that you'll be able to go out sailing on a day with little wind and go anywhere without also peddling.

The kit out of the box doesn't work very well. You'll want to reduce friction by adding a block to the handle area at the stern. I also added a cleat so that I don't have to hold the main sheet the whole time.

Then you may want to set up a furling device. If you don't have a furler and the wind picks up a lot, you'll have to pull the mast out of the hole, wind it all up and stow it on the side of your kayak like a paddle. This is not an easy maneuver to do when you are in rough conditions.

With a furler, you just pull on a line and the sail wraps up. You can either make one out of pvc pipe or you can buy one from Hobie.

Next you may want to add the sidekicks which are like training wheels for your kayak. I've found that you really don't need them at least on my wide Outback, but they do add peace of mind.

Once you have everything dialed in for sailing, it does add another fun way to use your kayak.

I bought this hoping it would make my Oasis a legitimate mini sail boat. The quality and fit n finish are both great so no complaints there, but I find this to be little more than a "Toy" for the Kayak. It seems you more "drift" with this sail, and what you would actually perceive as "sailing" can only be done by "reaching" with the wind. No matter how I trim the sail, I find that you can easily outpace "sailing" with a standard Mirage drive for both Tacking Closed Haul, and Running. I would say that if you are interested in Kayak Sailing , you might wish to buy the Island Adventure setup. I bought this and the AMA Sidekicks from all the great reviews I read. I have to admit I am disappointed.

Definitely 5 stars, this is a great product, very well made. I have used this sail during a storm and got myself in a bad situation. I thought the mast or sail would have received damaged but the held up well. Yu will find yourself sailing more that pedaling or paddling.
