Because of my constant curiosity about alternate sail rigs, I intend to try something different again for the next trip. I'll bring a standard balanced lug rig which is similar to the junk but without the battens. The polytarp I used for the junk rig is nearing the end of its life so I would have to replace it in any case.
So far my wife Rose has caught a Spanish mackerel and a trevalley from the canoe; each of which fed four.
A little over a week to go and then it's back to the NZ winter and fires every night.
