SeaDog Commander Clear-View Twin Batten

The SeaDog Commander Clear View is the latest sail from the SeaDog range of sails which include the Multi-coloured sails made of nylon Spinnaker cloth, the Black Diamond series and now the Commander Clear-View with twin battens.  The Black Diamond series are now also available with the Clear-View bottom panel.

The use of hi tech sailcloth combined with the high quality workmanship and the twin batten design of the Commander as well as the great value for money places these sails ahead of any competition.  

The design of the Commander Clear View was

To create a lower aspect sail with a shorter mast taking up less room on the deck.  Mast length 146cm
The mast boom and battens to fold together as one neat package when stowed on the deck.
Twin battens to improve the aerodynamic shape in all wind strengths.
Reduce the likelihood of “motoring” when the leech flutters due to stretch of the sailcloth.
Clear-View bottom panel for exceptional forward visibility.
Hi tech sail fabric combined with a coloured top panel for great visibility on the water.

Top panel colours available on request:-
Red, Green, Pink, Orange, Grey, Blue, Yellow, Purple
Edge trim colours Red, Green, Black, Blue, White

Examples of the Commander are pictured below.  These sails are available for immediate delivery or if out of stock can be made within a week.
All Commanders are available with reefing points as optional extra $15
The reefing points make the sail even more versatile reducing the area to approx 0.6m and thus having one sail to cover an even wider wind range. (See pic below)
Sails have been shipped worldwide including USA, Canada, UK, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and West Indies.

SeaDog Black Diamond Clear-View™ 0.8m Code P1010396   $300    

The Black Diamond Clear-ViewTM utilises a clear see-through Mylar cloth with a black Aramid diamond pattern on the bottom panel.  The see-through panel allows excellent visibility while still maintaining a fully aerodynamic shape to the sail. The Mylar is shiny on both sides and is crinkly to the touch.  This may suit the kayaker who wants visibility through the sail and would otherwise have requested a separate vinyl panel sewn into the sail. Having the entire bottom panel as see through allows vastly better visibility than a vinyl window, which historically has been the only option.

SeaDog Black Diamond Clear-View™ 0.8m Code  P1010402  $300

Orange top panel giving excellent visibility on the water. Dark and light grey Contender sailcloth with black Aramid reinforcing.  Clear-View Aramid reinforced bottom panel to give excellent vision ahead.

Fitting SeaDog sails to SOTs and Fishing Kayaks

If you have a SOT fishing kayak, why not take advantage of the wind to take you to your chosen spot.  While SOTs won't point as high to the wind as a Sea Kayak they will have a significant improvement in speed on a reach (with the wind abeam) or aft (with the wind coming from behind).
The recommended sail size for a SOT is 0.8m as these boats are significantly heavier than a Sea Kayak and much wider and therefore  more stable.

The mast can be mounted as either a 3 stay system utilising 2 sidestays and a backstay or 2 stays as in the picture above.

The uphaul and sheet ropes are run along the gunwhale either side of the cockpit and out of the way of the rudder pedals.
