Designer & Sailmaker

Mick MacRobb
A dedicated work ethic, an appreciation for quality, a steady hand, and a generous spirit. Mick creates every sail in his home workshop in Australia.

Mick worked an adult apprenticeship as a sailmaker (for the big boats). His recreational background in kayaking combined with his passion for sailing, and the Flat Earth Kayak Sail was born.

Expedition Paddler

Geoff Murray
In March 2011, Geoff and friends paddled across Bass Strait, the infamous water between mainland Australia and Tasmania. He used a Flat Earth Sail when the weather was right. He continues to travel and paddle on expeditions, recently in Greenland.

Geoff is responsible for introducing Ginni to Flat Earth Kayak Sails; indeed to paddling in Australia! His wilderness and landscape photography is well-known in Australia, and lovely.

A Little History

Wind is an everyday companion when paddling in Australian waters, so it was natural for paddlers to reconnect the sail with the kayak (as it had been early in its recreational history with the Victorian era Rob Roy). Out of many designs, Flat Earth is the top of the line modern Australian sail.
