Sailing

I hoisted a single sail and peeled off down wind like a rocket.
I feathered the sail back, trying to head up into the wind.
There was something perversely exhilarating about this situation,
which challenged me to the limit of my sailing skill.
Howard Rice, Solo Cape Horn Expedition

Upwind Sailing - Downwind Sailing

What is the difference?
Consider a frog and a bird, both jumping off a fence. The frog will land on the ground, the bird will fly in the sky.
Why? The frog has only a "downwind sail", its belly. The bird has an "upwind sail", its wings.

Conclusion:
With a downwind sail rig, you are limited on where you can go - see shaded area below. With an upwind sail rig,
you can go anywhere you want - see Upwind Area and Downwind area.

"Sail if you can, paddle if you must" is an old paddler-phrase.

With the Klepper-Drift sails or with the downwind full sail for your Klepper-folding kayak, you save a lot of work
and energy.
Easy to assemble and manage even for beginners, you will have an astonishingly effective result. Now, with the new reshaped and modernized sails with big windows and super-light fabric you will be even faster.
