I think we are all born with the desire to try new things. How else would we learn to walk? And at some point school, work, colleagues, and even church and family press us into a mold that we did not select. People ask me why I choose Junk Sails, I tell them they lend themselves well to DIY construction and single handed sailing. But maybe it’s also because there are so few and they are so strange, and they fit the mold of my choosing.
