Adding a Mizzen sail to my Outrigger Sailing Canoe

 One of the first modifications I did was to add a mizzen sail to my 16 foot Wa'apa outrigger sailing canoe. Again I bought this sail from Solway Dory. It is a 35 foot bermudan sail, giving a total sail area of this setup to 90 feet. 

I really like having the mizzen sail as it helps to balance the helm and also adds to the performance. This small clip was taken when sailing from Teignmouth back to Exmouth. Both sails are easily reefable by wrapping the sail round the mast.
