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 (30 km/h).
whole thing is a real mini sailboat, balanced, healthy, with amazing performance.
The user is comfortably seated, leaning against his seat, in the direction
of travel. If 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. Learning and handling are simple and intuitive.
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. PEDAYAK can reach 5 knots without sail and 7 knots with sail.
It is recommended to use the PEDAYAK under sail with less than 20 km/h (10 knots) of wind for beginners, 30 km/h (15 knots)
for more experienced peoplend.
or two rigs of PEDAYAK can also be installed on the PEDAYAK DUO
which becomes a real sailing and human powered catamaran particularly stable.
