For the past two years I have helped out at the WaterTribe North Carolina Challenge. This year I've signed up for it. I'm looking to crew on a sailboat but I may end up doing it in the worlds most comfortable paddling vessel, the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 160. My sail for the Tarpon is over a meter square so I'll have to use a different sail or run in class 3 even though I do not use outriggers.
This Summer I'll practice napping in the Tarpon without falling out. I did pretty well on the "Other Side of Hell" trip last year. Mitch said I kept paddling while I fell asleep. Unfortunately when I sleep and paddle I veer off to starboard. Should I design an autopilot for my kayak?
