PEDAYAK 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.

So PEDAYAK is the only one kayak capable of sailing in all wind directions.

In 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).

The 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.

The 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.

One or two rigs of PEDAYAK can also be installed on the PEDAYAK DUO which becomes a real sailing and human powered catamaran particularly stable.
