The DYI Sail Rig is discontinued! We have left this section of the web site for your reference. You can still build your own rig, but you will have to source the cloth and do the sewing.
Do-It-Yourself kayak sails! Make masts from easy to find PVC pipe and wood dowels, use hardware from our TopKayaker shop and slip on the pre-sewn sailcloth. Set it up on your kayak and you are ready to sail! See the video showing the JNR sail in action. Instructional Videos at Links Below, in Four Parts. Use in concert with online article above.
Additional hardware; strap eyes, web strap, cordage, rivets, well-nuts, ny-lock nuts and stainless steel machine screws are available in our Kayak Parts, Rope, and Hardware sections and in our Rigging Supply department for sailors.
