Windrider 16

The sleek little WindRider for sporty, simplistic sailing.

It's so easy to rig up a WindRider 16 that anyone can do it in 20 minutes or less. The carbon fiber mast weighs 22 pounds and just like that, you can be on the water for a solo sail or treating friends to the thrill of armchair sailing.

· Comfortably carries one person in the cockpit plus 2 on the trampolines

· Simple to sail and easy to learn

· Nearly impossible to capsize

Purchase includes 3-section carbon fiber mast for added performance; a matching, tall, batten-less sail; 2 trampolines (one for each side of the hull); soft cockpit cover; plus all rigging and control lines.

Additional options include spray diverter, windshield, heavy weather cockpit cover and aluminum trailer.

The WindRider 16 gives you these standard WindRider features:

Sporty styling that turns heads

Hands-free, foot pedal steering

A single control line


Nearly impossible to capsize
