is the only kayak in the world with real keels. Even though their main objective
is to protect the propeller and rudder, in shallow water or on the beach,
they also function as "anti-drift" allowing a good behaviour with sail,
in particular to sail upwind.
PEDAYAK is the only one kayak capable of sailing in all wind directions.
short, PEDAYAK with its sail is probably the smallest existing
sailing and "motor" boat, with amazing qualities under sail, able to
sail in shaped seas, with winds up to 15 knots (27 km/h) and even much more
with the TRIO, DUO and PRAO : 20 knots (37 km/h).
whole thing is a real mini sailboat, balanced, healthy, with amazing performance
: PEDAYAK can overcome 5 knots (10 km/h) with its sail.
necessary, a few strokes of the pedals can be used to help tacking change
or gybe quickly, manoeuvre in a port, return when the wind drops or go to
safety. The user is comfortably seated, leaning against his backrest, in
the direction of travel, seeing forward on 180°. Learning and handling
are simple and intuitive.
the PEDAYAK TRIO (trimaran), DUO (catamaran) and PRAO (1
side float) versions, le craft stays flat even in gusts of wind, it is very
safe, it goes straight. The TRIO and PRAO allows excursions
and raids further away from the coast in complete safety, but also learning
and beach recreationnal activities. If the wind forces excessively, the
sail can be easily neutralised by taking the rigging out of its base and,
as it floats, and then towed to shore.
or two rigs of PEDAYAK can also be installed on the PEDAYAK DUO
which becomes both a real sailing and human powered catamaran particularly
rigging consists of an aluminium
two-parts mast, not guyed, placed in a reinforced and waterproof well through
the hull, and a 3.6 mē sail specially designed for the PEDAYAK. Rigging
PEDAYAK takes 5 minutes.
