Because this (for me) pertains particularly to multihulls, I also include it here:
Been browsing pros and cons of various rigs, recently. Am intrigued re. how (acc. to junk rig
enthusiasts) much easier it seems to be to both handle and quickly drop junk rigs, compared to traditional rigs .
So, the thought occurred to me to ask if anyone has tested junk rigs on cats (for my interest between 25ft - 35ft length) and how did the junk rig work
on the various points of sailing (tacks, reach etc) , compared with trad. rigs.
seems to have established sufficient confidence in such a rig but as of to date the idea of using it on up-to-date designs seems to have not caught on a lot. Can anyone comment? Thank you.
