North Carolina Challenge

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?
