Fire it through and we'll be in touch.

Easy deploy kayak sail.


The WindPaddle Scout Sail will pull your kayak or canoe quickly downwind, yet is easy enough for kids aged 8-80 to handle.

Great for solo boaters looking for a simple and forgiving sail to help the trip go faster.

Weight: 340 grams


  • 1/2 ounce rip-stop polyester spinnaker sailcloth, the same material used on racing yachts, is a low-stretch fabric that will not absorb water or become heavy when wet
  • Easy-to-use clips make rigging the Scout quick and simple
  • Can be clipped to just about anything, including deck lines, cleats, bungees, pad eyes, fairleads, thwarts, gunwale handholds or a bench seat
  • Deploys in a matter of seconds
  • The WindPaddle design keeps the sail's center of force low, making the boat/sail combination stable and easy to handle
  • A clear window in the center lets you see where you're going
  • A continuous sheet (or steering line) allows the paddler to control the sail while holding their paddle for bracing and steering
  • Coils flat so it's easy to stow in your canoe or under your kayak's rigging
  • Super lightweight, so it won't weigh down your boat when stowed
