Synopsis: The authoritative source used by designers and builders worldwide for designing, building, and sailing a Chinese junk-rig
 
This encyclopedic volume synthesizes 25 years of research and development of this unique rig as adapted to Western craft. It is a work that has been welcomed by the growing number of yachtsmen and designers throughout the world who already enjoy the benefits of the junk rig or who wish to do so. 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 analyzes performance, all assisted by a wealth of detailed line illustrations. 

About the Author: H. G. Hasler was a lieutenant colonel in the Royal Marines and was awarded the OBE for his services in Norway in 1940 and the DSO for leading a daring raid on German shipping in 1942. He was the author of cruising guides, invented the modern yacht wind vane self-steering gear, and founded the Single-Handed Transatlantic Race in 1960 and the Round Britain Race. J. K. McLeod became close friends with HG Hasler in 1961, sailing Hasler’s junk-rig Jester on Loch Ness where Hasler was setting up the first Loch Ness Monster investigation. He became Hasler’s partner in 1963 and was his enthusiastic disciple until Hasler’s untimely death. He currently sails his own 47-foot Chinese schooner Ròn Glas to further develop the advantages of the junk rig.
