Well, we have not purchased our own Kayaks yet. We plan to next year so we have not got that far yet. We went down and rented Kayaks for this trip and we have a season pass to our boathouse district (River Sport Adventures) and we get to use their Kayaks any time.
But we do want our own and will be looking at rack options.
I really like the low profile Rola bars and I see lots of the J carriers around here. So I'm leaning towards that set up. We will have our own boats by next Spring so I've got more time to look around.
Right now we are looking at getting an Emotion Spitfire 9 for my wife and a Spitfire 12 for my daughter and myself. That 12 is going to be a lot of boat on the roof, I hope it works out OK.
A quick look at the Auqua Carriers shows that it only carries one thing at a time. Can't have that! LOL!
Did a search on line and found this, I know it shows it on an Evoque but will it fit the discovery?

found it on the Land Rover UK site and it shows the same part number fits the Discovery
The Land Rover "Acqua Sports Carrier" as it is sold now does not look like the pic of the Evoque above. I purchased it and it is not as advertised. I checked and the part no. was correct. It is two u shaped holders that tilt for easy loading of one vessel. It also comes with two holders for your oar(s). I bought it for the surfboard ability which it does not have. I am not certain if the 099 model is still available or sold.
