The Advanced Elements RapidUp Sail is a compact, portable, and easy to set up downwind sail that rapidly deploys and quickly stows flat on the deck of your kayak. The unique shape of this sail is specially designed to conform to kayak decks and uses a built in non-corroding spring frame that gives the RapidUp the ability to spring open. Made of high quality, durable rip-stop sail cloth; this sail has adjustable attachments, quick connecting lanyards, d-rings, and a carabiner for easy attachment to multiple deck configurations. So the next time you are out paddling with a good tail wind, just remember, with a quick flip of the RapidUp Sail, you will have that extra push to get you to your next destination.

Rapid up Sail is a very efficient way to go downwind without a pole or need of a paddle for sail. Works well to fold on front deck and popup when needed, or dismantle and trifold when done.
I set this up on my Carolina 14 kayak. I added five eye straps to the hull, one in front, two on each side, in order to place the sail correctly. It works great! Easy to deploy, manage, douse and store. Great for downwind running.
