The Leading Edge

...of sailmaking. Mick MacRobb is the sailmaker and creative genius behind Flat Earth Kayak Sails.
All Flat Earth Kayak Sails are made one at a time by Mick in his workshop.
He does quality work, as you can see by this reef point on a TW100 sail. Mick continues to innovate and incorporate the latest in sailcloth technology.
When you get a Flat Earth Kayak Sail, you're getting the very best. Mick and Flat Earth North America stand behind his work. See more about Mick, and his informative videos on flatearthkayaksails.com

 

CZ100

 

Sizes

Flat Earth Sails come in 3 basic sizes.
.7 sq meter "70"
We recommend .7 sq meter or "70" sails for kayaks 16' or shorter so that the stowed mast does not conflict with the cockpit.

.8 sq meter "80"
The 80 is a good all-around sail for expeditions and day trips on kayaks 16' or longer.

One square meter "100"
For those in search of speed and addicted to adrenaline, there is the 100. The North American versions of these sails come with reef points that take the sail down to about .75 sq meters. The mast is long, so this fits best on a long kayak.

FEKS Trade Wind (TW) Sails

The latest model is "Trade Wind", released in 2015. It's an aggressive, sharp-looking sail that grabs the wind and runs with it. When the TW first hit North America in 2015, it blew off the shelves, and the feedback continues to be overwhelmingly positive!
Trade Wind is made of a UV-resistant transparent Grand Prix material with carbon and kevlar reinforcement threads, making it extremely resilient and resistant to stretching. Scottish sailor Douglass Wilcox comments, "This type of cloth has been long used on windsurfer wave sails and they take a real thrashing."
