  Depends on how much you want to carry

If you happen to have the wind at your back, it is probably worth it. Otherwise, it is extra weight. Several of us have taken sail rigging on out NFCT adventures, but so far have only been able to use them once. Usually the wind is in our face.

If you are paddling tandem, use a sturdy golf umbrella. Doesn't take much room, and has other uses on rainy days, and they usually are pretty good for downstream sailing while held by the bowman.
