The Windrider 10 is a pocketful of fun for anyone at any age. Hoist the sail, put your feet on the pegs and go. A whisper can move it. The main hull weighs just 70 pounds so it rides easily on most car tops. The boat can set it up in less than 10 minutes with no tools, hop in and sail away. Turns on a dime. 1-2 person capacity Paddles easy if the wind dies down and one is included. Easily fits in the back of a pickup, van, or SUV.
I put my then 14-year-old son in the boat, he had never sailed but after 5 minutes of basic instructions, he took off, sailed into the bay, and came back. Truly, anyone can sail this boat, no experience is needed.
The boom is high enough that you don't have to worry about ducking when the sail changes sides. The sail has a single line control for one-handed operation. It steers with footpegs adjustable for any height or the passenger in front of you.
The boat is ultra-stable and has plenty of room for extra gear. I never overnighted with it but there is more than enough room to take a weekend’s worth of gear. I have sailed in much stronger winds than I ever would in any similar small monohull sailboat and have always felt safe. Even with one ama buried there was no feeling that a capsize was about to happen.
