When we decided to design a sail for our Portage Pram we had several goals, including excellent performance and ease of use. To achieve the former we maximized sail area up high with a square top and full battens to support the shape of the sail built with Challenge sail cloth. To achieve the latter we decided on a sleeved sail that simply slips over the optional 2-piece fiberglass mast, and we did away with the boom in favor of a batten near the foot with a strong downhaul for tensioning. The result is high-performance rig that will go to weather well and spill gusts from the top of sail easily - making it easily controllable - but it's also easy to set or strike, with no boom to duck, and less hardware to buy. Simple sails that can be rigged in seconds get far more use that ones that take longer. The sail even comes in a bag that will hold the 2-piece mast.
