I think Sean already figured out a solution to "cam cleat that will fit in Passport H-Track?". But these are a few things I found on forums that can give you a good sailing setup without drilling holes that I thought others might find helpful:

From Matt Miller:
For the passport, you will need to teather a small turning block or ring to the aft handle insert.
Something like:

From yaw-string for the track mounted cleat and just overall good sailing advice, a recently posted YouTube video that shows a cleat attached to track (originally in "inflatables" section):
Whether you tie knots in the sheet for grip, or an endloop to go around your foot, or add a ratchet... it is important that tension can be released quickly and payout the sail for sudden depower. On a typical sailboat you also could steer into the wind to depower, but your rudder isn't that quick responding.
My various caveats are due to the fact that if you find 15mph manageable, you have got to be prepared for getting caught in sketchy 20 as gusts, squalls, or whatever. I think at worst I was once driven to face the wind head on and pedal in place for a while, which handles waves nicely too. Anyway here is a good sailing tips video talking about 10 to a cautious 20 mph range, altho it depicts a furling model.

Youtube "Small Craft Advisory - How to Sail a Kayak" from Ryan Wood

(sorry don't know how to post pics or videos and sorry if redundant, just know its hard to find these things sometimes)

Have fun!
