    Default Power Kite Sailing

    Has anyone tried flying a power kite from the bow seat as a sail please?
    If yes, I wondered which Kite and how big. I have now ordered a 2.1 mtr Kite but wondered if anyone could recomend a launch method. Canoe is Old Town Charles River.

    Looking forward to your comments Shoestring

    I`ve had some wild times with Power Kites and Buggys. Used to fly Flexifoil Blades, with sizes that ranged from 4 meters to 10.5 meters.

    It would now scare me crazy, you need an awful lot of room with those.

    Thank you for the links to the other threads.
    Looking through they seemed to have taken it pretty seriously. I was just looking at having a little fun really, allowing my 18yr old son to try something a little different, while up front.
    We are off to Loch Veyatie, Fionn Loch, Loch Sionscaig, boat bay etc the week after next for around 6 days, walking a few mountains shooting a few rolls of digital film and generally living the dream etc etc.
