A flannel bed sheet is perfect. The speed with a tail wind is downright amazing. On the upper Missouri R in MT we had large roostertails and made 10 mph over ground speed. It is like cheating.

During the Golden Age of Canoeing (before cars) canoe sailing was common. To sail in any direction except downwind, lee boards are needed on each gunnel. A mast step is built into the bottom of the hull. A tiller can be added.
