Summer Sailing in Sweden

Joergen Agardtson and friends have been sailing his Wa'apa for the last three summers. 

It looks like he's using chine runners instead of a leeboard.

How good are chine runners? Are they any use for upwind work? Do you have any other details such on constructing them?

Jörgen Agardtson said...

I can sail upwind and tack. I read about chinerunners in Sven Yrvinds book the Constructor. He writes about Matt Layden and his use of chinerunners. So I thought why not try to add them to the Waapa design and see if they would work on an outrigger sailing canoe.
