Re: Me & My Collection of Project Boats
Been tempted to try a sailing kayak, but most of the paddling I do is on the Mohawk River in Upstate NY. There's a few straight stretches where I might be able to get enough wind to sail, but there aren't many. Maybe if I hit Saratoga Lake...
No problem kayak sailing on rivers, one of the best places for it in my opinion. When John Macgregor first invented the recreational sailing kayak 150+ years ago, it was the canals of Europe he had in mind.
I sail mine the Rideau River in Eastern Ontario, which is smaller than the Mohawk. Its the great thing about sailing kayaks, you can paddle them upwind in a river and sail them down.
