Kayak Sailing

I'd like to extend a thank-you to Gary and Pacific Action Sails. They have sponsored me with one of their downwind PAS kayak sails since my 2006 WaterTribe Ultimate Florida Challenge.

In the UFC, I paddled my Kruger Dreamcatcher 1200 miles around Florida (with a 40 mile portage). I paddled with my sail, every day for 30 days.

In 2007 and 2008 I again paddled and sailed my Dreamcatcher in the WaterTribe Everglades Challenge. In those events, I used a Balogh Sail Rig, and my PAS as a jib.
This year, 4 years later, and after much heavy use, my sail was starting to show some effects of salt and sun exposure. Gary has again offered sponsorship of a new sail.

Thanks Gary. I really appreciate the support.

And for all you kayakers who haven't tried a sail, your really missing out, a down wind sail on your kayak is great fun.
