We can sell it as a paddling canoe but one that is ready to take a sailing rig for you to upgrade to later. It comes with fore and aft built in buoyancy tanks, and fixing points for side buoyancy bags. It has a mast thwart and mast foot and discrete rudder fittings so you can easily upgrade.

We also sell it with our Expedition Rig and Expedition Leeboard. This is our simplest sailing rig and it uses the paddle for steering. We use two bags each side so as to keep the paddling thwart clear. This enables you to kneel in the bilge unimpeded.

We can also supply and fit our standard rudder.

 

The rig is quick and easy to set up and efficient for sailing upwind. It is easy to take down and stow in the boat, and is small enough to lie in the boat without interfering with paddling.

The narrow beam of this canoe makes it an ideal flat water paddling canoe for the experienced paddler, but will feel rather tippy for the novice
