      Qatar-bound rig nears sailaway from Chinese yard for North Field Expansion work The second unit chartered by Qatar Petroleum to leave Chinese yards in .   A sloop rig is a boat with a single-mast and a fore and aft sail configuration. Sloops date back to the early 17th century but didn’t really become popular until the 20th century. The likely reason for their popularity is their ability to effectively head up wind and how relatively simple they are to control – great for short-handing.

      The Chinese people have been sailing in junks of different designs for thousands of years. For centuries, ocean-going trading junks traveled between China and Southeast Asia, India, and in the s, even as far as Africa. By that time Chinese junks were the largest, strongest, and most seaworthy ships in the world. Bamboo strips, called battens, stiffened the sail and made it easier to roll up in high winds. Painted eye. Chinese junks had painted eyes on them, one on each side. It was believed that this helped the boat see where it was going. Rudder. The rudder was a large, heavy board attached to the stern (back) of the junk.

    The Chinese Junk rig is extremely versatile. With its fully battened sails, it can be easily reefed for different wind conditions. The sails can be set to any size and at any point on the masts the crew wishes, making it very easy to handle in rough weather at sea. The ship can be single-handed, although we never sail with less than 2 crew.   Paul's 65ft Origami Steel Chinese Junk Sailboat - Duration: Junk Rig Sailing on 'Footprints' - Duration: David Thatcher 9, views. .
