The CLC Shearwater Sport offers the perfect combination of lightweight, sharp West Greenland handling, effortless cruising speed, and an extra-large cockpit for comfort.
Watertight bulkheads and flush-mounted deck hatches are standard, so many builders go camping in their Shearwater Sports.
All kayak design is a compromise. For speed, you want the kayak to be long and narrow. For comfort, you want beam (width) and a big cockpit. For maneuverability and compactness, a short kayak is desirable. Artful compromise is the mark of good design, and we feel that designer Eric Schade’s Shearwater Sport is a great combination of kayak virtues.
