Little Egret solo sailing canoeLittle Egret solo sailing canoeLittle Egret solo sailing canoeLittle Egret is our lightest and simplest sailing canoe. It has been designed to be a very efficient solo paddling canoe that can also be sailed with our simple Expedition Rig.

We sell it as a paddling canoe, or one that is ready to take a sailing rig for you to upgrade to later. It comes with small buoyancy tanks at bow & stern, and fixing points for end & side buoyancy bags. Options include a mast thwart & mast foot, and rudder fittings so you can easily upgrade.

We also sell it with our Expedition Rig and Expedition Leeboard. This is our simplest sailing rig and it uses the paddle for steering. We use two bags each side so as to keep the paddling thwart clear. This enables you to kneel in the bilge unimpeded.

We can also supply and fit our standard rudder.

The rig is quick and easy to set up and efficient for sailing upwind. It is easy to take down and stow in the boat, and is small enough to lie in the boat without interfering with paddling.

The narrow beam of this canoe makes it an ideal flat water paddling canoe for the experienced paddler, but may feel a little tippy for the novice.

The Little Egret is hand laminated in a combination of glass fibre & carbon/Kevlar hybrid cloth, together with 3D Core material in the base of the hull - this gives excellent strength and stiffness, whilst keeping the canoe as light as possible. Our standard construction uses anodised aluminium gunwales.
