"Hello Junk rigged people! I have just been sailing my Tiki21 again here in India.  I must say it is interesting how much extra power the smaller foresail makes, especially going to windward.  (schooner-rigged, both masts have shrouds/stays…"

"Hi Paul Welcome here and thank you to share your rig experiments. I think the problem with the Tiki rig is to well control the curve of the main sail. When closing the wind you harden sheets and the sail become more flat and so less powerful and…"

Tiki 21 Junk rig, Leeway, tabernacles etc

I have a Tiki 21, I built in India and sail here.  Recently made a junk rig for her as the Jeckells sails went walkabout.  Have just posted some pics at this site.I have some questions.Even with the original Jeckells wing sail and jib I had quite a struggle to work to windward to keep off a leeshore. The leeway seems quite high.  Choppy seas quickly stop the boat when closehauled and very hard to tack in these conditons.  If one eases the sheets a bit you soon speed up but then you arent making…See More

I am:
A home builder, I own a Wharram
What boat (s) are you building or do you own?
I built a tiki 21 in India 14 years ago to a good standard, still very good today. Now I am planning to set it up with two junk rig sails, one on each hull. Any advice welcome.
I built the junk rig... is this the first Tiki 21 rigged as a Schooner with Junk sails?? See my photos anyway!
Country, City, and State?
Kerala India
About me or us?
From the Uk but living and working in S Asia for past 20 years.
Looking to?
Set up junk rig on my Tiki 21.
Thought of doing it as a schooner set up, like the vietnamese fishing boats - four shrouds per mast. This would use existing mast on x-beam and a bamboo mast on forwd x-beam, each with four shouds. But the shrouds mean that the JR is not able to swing fully out on either sail. So maybe better to go a mast in each hull, each with the same size junk sail. Any idea on best position of masts? And max sail areas?
