Group Description

Welcome to the Junk Rig List. After searching for information on the internet

pertaining to the Junk Rig, I've realized that there is not a lot of

information out there. This list has been created to discuss the design

building and sailing of the Chinese Junk Rig. List members will also be able to

post relevant articles and pictures.

Note: The Files and Photos sections have been re-opened for new submissions. Yahoo! have increased the limits on Files and Photos so that we now have
enough space to use them again. The overflow group, junkrig2, still exists. See
target="_blank" href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/junkrig2/"> Junkrig2

The feature photo shows the front cover of the newly re-published "Practical Junk Rig" by Blondie Hasler
and Jock McLeod. This seminal work on rigging western boats with Chinese junk rigged sails has been
out of print for several years. It is now being published in the UK by Adlard Coles Nautical and in the US by Tiller Books.

Photo contributions of new or old junks are always welcome.
