I have a wilderness systems pungo140. This sail moves it through the water nicely. I can even tack left or right with a little problem as I do not have a rudder so I have to adjust with the paddle. It is lots of fun.

PROS: Good for doubling or tripling your speed downwind. Lightweight and easy to fold once you know how. Stows on the deck out of the way. Quick to move over to kayak, canoe, and back. Clear center lets you see where you are going. Faster/motorized boaters can spot you better at a distance. Durable materials. CONS: Somewhat expensive. You need steady wind for good results. This DOES NOT make your kayak/ canoe a sailboat - you cannot tack, go upwind, etc. Be careful not to let it dip to the sides as it will quickly fill with water creating an effective sea anchor. FINAL: A good way to 3X your time going downwind, but it's a one trick tool.

Well I'm hoping that as time goes on I'll like it better but my first time out not so much! Maybe the lake I was on was too small I'm not sure but I had absolutely no control over the sail unless I reached forward and grabbed the top of the sail itself... The wind would change all of a sudden and blow right back in my face and was quiet entertaining to some I'm sure ! I have it on my fishing kayak and for one, up front where it's supposed to be is too far away for me and I have a LONG reach.... I'm wanting to move it back more towards me but that would leave a huge (void) underneath. The few times I did catch the wind I enjoyed it but I have to say too that the window they show in this picture is (a lot) bigger than the one I was sent!!!!! For right now I can only give it a (2)...

The Cruiser model is as big a sail as I wanted even for our usually mild SoCal winds. I got it for fun or emergencies, not typical day-trips. Rigging was simple and secure across the bow seat of my Hobie Oasis. With both mirage drives held vertical, I was able to make way downwind of course and even across the wind but paddling would be much faster in most conditions. In the rare event I'd want to sail it with a paddler in the bow, I might consider screwing extra padeyes in to the hull, because my existing deck lines are kind of floppy. Furling isn't that tricky, and I bungee it down because it won't fit into my hatch. Would be 5 stars but the window gets pretty wrinkly and hard to see through. This near-perfect sail canot make a kayaker like me a 5 star sailor!

I ordered the Cruiser sail for my kayak and I love sailing down the lake in a stiff breeze. However, the clips that attach the sail to the kayak are rather flimsy and they keep unattaching themselves from the eye hooks. I called the manufacturer about the problem, but he only recommended tying a loop to the eye hook and clipping the sail to that.

Used the sail a few times so far it takes a little to get use to but once you get going it will really push you along.After a long day of fishing its real nice to just kick back and let the wind take you home.I beleive that if you have a rudder system to steer with it would really help out.When you use your paddle to steer it does slow you down unless you pull the paddle instead of using it for drag on one side.overall it is a great purchase.

After watching the folding videos and mastering this "art", we launched into a nice breeze that carried us much further and faster than we had anticipated. Quality construction, but a bit light on the instructions on how to use the sail in the included brochure. If you have a computer, bone up ahead of time in their FYI's and videos. Basically, it's a novel sail that is fun to use and really works. It helps with the paddling, easily pushing the canoe faster than you can paddle. We'd recommend the sail, with the knowledge that you eventually need to paddle back up wind. I'd suggest a "Downwinder" or do your upwind paddling first.
