Chinese Sail

Insert junk joke here.

The Chinese Sail by Brian Platt
A sailor's critique of the sail on the Chinese junk:
There is no such thing as an ideal sail for all conditions and I doubt whether there ever will be. Among most yachtsman the Bermuda rig has become generally accepted, and with good reason, because of its windward ability and its relative simplicity and lack of chafe. It is a good sail for easy conditions, which are the conditions under which most yachtsmen do their sailing. However, for all round cruising ability in difficult or unfamiliar conditions I think the Chinese sail is unbeatable.
(Thanks, Kirby!)
