Three Rig Choices for the Viola Sailing Canoe Kit

If you have questions about the Viola 14 Sailing Canoe in General, the builders and sailors hang out on the Storer Boat Plans Facebook Page. Lots of useful information for considering a build or if you want

The Viola 14 Sailing Canoe comes with three rig options. Most will choose either the 6.3m Lug Rig which allows easy reefing for distance sailing and RAID events or the 5m Laminate sail.

Joost Engelens the first builder, has all three sails and finds the Lug Rig is best for the RAID events. But the 5m sail best for family picnics.

However, Speed Freaks will like the 6m laminate square top sail. Almost as much sail area as a Laser on a much narrower, but better behaved hull 🙂

Below 6.3m Lug, 5.0m squaretop, 6m squaretop.
