This encyclopaedic volume synthesises 25 years of research and development of this unique rig as adapted to western craft. It is a work which has been welcomed by the growing number of yachtsmen and designers throughout the world who already enjoy the benefits of junk rig or who wish to do so. Now in paperback for the first time, Practical Junk Rig examines the design and aerodynamic theory behind junk rigs and discusses how best to sail them. It outlines the rig in detail, the principles that underlie it, considers possible alternative shapes and arrangements and analyses performance, all assisted by a wealth of detailed line illustrations. 'There is no better or more compehensive work on the subject available...it should be considered THE handbook on junk rigs for anyone interested in the subject' Sailing 'I cannot recommend this book too highly' Classic Boat

'Blondie' Hasler was awarded the OBE for his services in Norway in 1940. He invented the modern yacht wind vane self-steering gear; founded the Single-handed Transatlantic Race in 1960 (in which he finished second in his junk-rigged Jester), and the Round Britain Race and did a great deal of developmental work on the Chinese junk rig for yachts. He died in 1987. Major Jock McLeod joined Hasler as a partner in 1963. He currently sails Ron Glas, his 47-foot junk rigged schooner and has made six Atlantic crossings in her, two of them in single-handed races.Review:
